If you’re like me, you crave Chipotle basically all the time. But actually getting Chipotle can be a hassle (unless you’re one of these lucky campuses).

Fortunately, you can make your own burrito bowl and prepare it in a trendy mason jar that you can show off to (or hide from, if you’re scared of being called a hipster) your friends. Bonus points if you add in your own homemade Chipotle guac.
