  • Hi Karla:

    Is the 320 calories for the full burrito or for half the burrito? Looks like this will satisfy my craving for Mexican! Is it on the lunch menu this week??!! LOL!

  • Hi Kevin,

    It’s 320 calories for 1/2 a burrito. The beans and veggies will help fill you up so you won’t be as hungry. You can also have a side of tortilla soup with your meal if you choose. Hope you enjoy!
