tasty ways to eat more vegetables

Add a side of peppers to your kid’s naked queso burrito from Qdoba :)

I love Qdoba!! And since I eat there at least once a week, I decided to add a side of peppers to my usual meal  to get in a serving of veggies.  I’ve been ordering  a kid’s naked chicken queso burrito instead of the adult one, which ends up being about 500 calories, rather than  955 calories.  The whole meal costs $5.07 and includes milk and a side of chips or beans.  I chop up the red and green peppers with a plastic knife and add them to my meal.  It doesn’t take too long, and it tastes delicious!!

This is how I order my naked queso burrito:

1.  Ask for a kid’s naked chicken queso burrito

2.  Ask for white rice.

3.  Ask for both black and pinto beans.

4.  Make sure they add the queso!

5.  Add mild salsa, salsa verde and cheese.

6.  Order a side of peppers.

Customize your order at Qdoba just how you like it and click here to see the nutrition facts.
