It takes me fewer than 5 minutes to drive to the closest Chipotle. They are experts at what they do, and although consistency is sometimes an issue, I can go from hungry to burrito stuffed in a matter of minutes. So, why would I want to try to make Chipotle at home? Will it taste better? Will I be able to work out any consistency issues? Will I be able to add things like cheese and sour cream that Chipotle doesn’t carry a vegan version of? Will it even be worth it?! Watch and find out!

Note: I didn’t develop any new recipes for this video. I just Googled and found a few that looked like they would do the job. I have linked below to the components and where the recipe that I used can be found.


  • Sofritas (recipe from Culinary Hill)
  • Black beans (recipe from Ally’s Cooking)
  • Cilantro lime brown rice (recipe from Culinary Hill)
  • Corn salsa (recipe from Culinary Hill)
  • Uncooked tortillas – Chipotle claims that their tortillas only have 5 ingredients. I found a brand of uncooked tortillas that also claim to only have 5 ingredients. They aren’t as big, but they seem to have a similar taste and texture.
  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Tomatillo salsa
  • Vegan sour cream or plain vegan greek yogurt
  • Vegan cheese
  • Lettuce
