Guac is free when you go veggie.

If we all took a hot second to think about how much money we’ve spent on guacamole at Chipotle, it’d probably make us pretty sad. Staffers warn you ahead of time that “guac is extra,” but that doesn’t lessen the $2.45 blow. What you might not know, though, is that veggie-only customers have been pulling a fast one on the rest of us this entire time. For them, guac is free.

Chipotle revealed the earth-shattering truth in an Instagram post on October 1. The chain wrote: “PSA. Tag a vegetarian who needs to know,” accompanied by a leafy salad bowl topped with a hefty dollop of delicious guac.

According to a Chipotle spokesperson, this offer is valid on salads, bowls, burritos, and tacos. You can even add rice and cheese! So as long as you’re cool skipping out on chicken, steak, barbacoa, carnitas, chorizo, and sofritas, you’re golden. Although sofritas is vegan, it is still classified as a protein or meat substitute. Go veggie or go home (or pay more for guac). The herbivorous perk is available at Chipotle outposts every day, unlike these 33 places that’ll give you free food on your birthday.
