Costco Takes on Chipotle With New Burrito Bowl Kit

The Chipotle Chicken Bowl is the latest addition to Costco's ready-to-eat lineup.

After a long, busy day, the thought of cooking a meal isn't always the most enticing activity. That's when opting for a prepared meal becomes an especially appealing option.

Costco is home to plenty of these quick and easy dishes and recently rolled out a new one that is sure to pique the interest of Chipotle fans: the Chipotle Chicken Bowl. Spotted at a price of $4.99 per pound, this meal includes grilled seasoned chicken, cilantro lime rice, shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, and lime wedges. The item is priced at around $17 or $18.

"Don't they sell whole chickens for $5? What's costing $13 here? Rice and shredded cheese?" another one questioned.
