Avoid the tortilla and sour cream and you're already in a pretty healthy situation eating at Chipotle, but the restaurant could be on the verge of getting healthier.
In an email to Business Insider, a rep from Chipotle said they've added quinoa to their New York City test kitchen.
"The quinoa is made with red and gold quinoa tossed with a little citrus juice, cumin, and freshly chopped cilantro," the rep told Business Insider. "We are recommending that added to a salad or in place of rice in another entree."
Quinoa vs. Rice
Quinoa and rice, or brown rice in this comparison, have similar amounts of carbohydrates, but quinoa separates itself by providing more dietary fibers, protein, magnesium and iron, according to Healthy Eating.
It's unclear if or when quinoa will be available at Chipotle Mexican Grill's nationwide.
More menu changes on the way?
Chipotle recently announced the hiring of former Taco Bell CEO Brian Niccol as their new CEO, and he's expected to play a large role in modifying Chipotle's menu offerings, Foodable reports.
Also currently on the New York City test kitchen menu are nachos, quesadillas, salads, and frozen margaritas.
The margaritas – a frozen classic margarita made with Sauza tequila and a frozen virgin strawberry margarita – have already been added to the menu at Chipotles in Austin, Texas.
