A SmartPoints guide to ordering at Mucho Burrito

Build your perfect burrito, taco or bowl.

At Mucho Burrito you can build your own burrito, taco, quesadilla, bowl or salad using any of the many bases, fillings, toppings, garnishes and cheeses offered by the fast-casual favourite. Mucho Burrito is a “fresh Mexican grill,” and features an assortment of healthy menu items that are relatively low in SmartPoints.

If you’re in the mood for a Tex Mex-inspired bowl or a salad you can skip ahead to the next section. For fans of the restaurant’s burritos, tacos and quesadillas, the SmartPoints values for tortillas and tacos are listed below. Opting for a 10 inch whole wheat tortilla will help keep points on the lower end while increasing the amount of dietary fibre in your meal.

Choose a base

Keep things simple by choosing brown rice as a base or try Mucho Burrito’s ancient grain medley, which contains millet, farro, wheat berries, lentils and quinoa — a filling combination of protein and fibre-rich foods that will keep you feeling energized for hours. Looking for a zero point option? Ask for a generous helping of seasonal greens as a base.

Choose a filling

Choose from low-to-zero SmartPoints fillings like chipotle black beans, pinto beans and mixed fajita veggies. Both types of beans add plant-based protein to your meal, and all three toppings are a source of dietary fibre.

Choose your toppings

With the exception of the guacamole and crispy jalapeno chips, all of the toppings at Mucho Burrito are zero SmartPoints on most plans. Load up on flavourful options like pico de gallo, salsa, lime-pickled cucumbers, grape tomatoes, pickled red onions, and charred corn.

The crispy jalapeno chips add texture and heat for 2 SmartPoints; or you can try substituting fresh jalapeno peppers for zero points

Choose your garnishes, cheese and sauce

To finish your creation, whether it’s a bowl, taco, burrito, quesadilla or salad, you can select any of the following garnishes, cheeses or sauces. Many of the items contain at least one SmartPoint, so take care not to go overboard with the following options if your remaining points budget is on the low side.
