The new hip burrito/taco slinging chain restaurant Chipotle uses the phrases "finest ingredients" and "prepared fresh", on their irritating flash-heavy website. Funny, they don't mention anything about "healthy". Good thing, because according to the Chipotle nutrition calculator, one flour tortilla chicken burrito with cheese, rice, black beans, sour cream, guacamole, corn, lettuce, tomatoes and salsa has 1492 calories, 64g total fat (21g saturated fat), and 4619 mg of sodium. Holy guacamole!!! That's ridiculous. But you're getting 156% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin A, so that's great.

Here's the punch line: they're 65% owned by McDonald's. So they're a chip off the ol' crap factory.
