Look at you, you hostess with the mostest, considering everyone’s needs. Now go mingle.
You don’t have to worry about a thing but networking, because Chipotle has taken care of it. That brings a smile to my unstressed face.

If you want to provide a lunch for your crowd, but would like to keep it neat and orderly, consider ordering the Burritos in a Box. Not only is this a tasty option that the crowd will love, but it’s easy for everyone to go grab a box, sectioned out by meats or veggie.
Just a helpful tip from a fellow event hostess to another.
The Burrito in a Box includes a choice of white or brown Cilantro-lime rice, cheese, black beans, and mild tomato salsa.
Plus for every two burritos a bag of chips, tomatillo-green chili salsa, guacamole, and sour cream are served. Now this seems a little odd, but let’s look at it as 50% off on the rest you have to order to complete the other meals.
Not a shabby deal.
Chips & Salsa
Don’t forget about the variety of salsas Chipotle offers, such as the Tomatillo-Red Chili Hot Salsa and hte Roasted Chili-Corn Medium Salsa, among various others.
Everyone likes chips and salsa, and this is an inexpensive filler and huge crowd pleaser. So go right on ahead with this additional order.
Be sure to order the variety of salsas and guacamole if you go this route.

Like I said, there’s not a huge catering offering, but when it’s done right, you don’t really need anything else. Chipotle has thought of the server ware, napkins, boxes and foods, so you’re completely covered for your next event.
