New to the board, but I just wanted to pass along that Cipotle Mexican Grill(at least the one we went to) cooks in peanut oil.

Please let us know where your area is. I live in Northern California and I asked at the Walnut Creek Chipotle and was told it was safe. But you never know day to day what you will be told [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

I just want you to know that my kids have eaten at Chipotle Mexican Grill. They ate their kids size chicken quesadilla with no problems. DH checked on the oil and it was not peanut oil.

Maybe not all Chipotle Grills are the same.

I went to the Chipotle Mexican Grill company website and emailed them as to the contents of their foods...especially the chips and oils that they use. I got an email back stating that there were no peanut oils or flours used in their products. I didn't ask at our specific Chipotle because I figured the food was distributed through a source to each restaurant but in the reply there was no statement that lead me to believe I needed to check every Chipotle.....I hope this is the case. I did have one store manager look at thier oil behind the counter and it was soybean.......would love to know what the situation is....we really love Chipotle.

Wow, I didn't even know there is a Chipotle in Walnut Creek. I usually end up going to the Baja Fresh on California. Food is better there.

The Chipotle is at Broadway Plaza across from Andronicos. I agree totally that Baja Fresh is MUCH better (also safe for PA).

Ah ok, that probably explains why I haven't noticed it yet. I'm still getting used to those new shopping centers. Most of the time it's easier for me to just head to Pleasant Hill even though downtown WC is closer.

Sorry for the dealy in replying. The Cipotle that cooks in peanut oil is in Reston, Virginia.
