How to order at Chipotle

I love Chipotle.  Here is some excellent advice about how to maximize your burrito order.  (I say carnitas and pinto beans, though, instead of steak/barbacoa and black beans.)

On a related note, I'm spending some time with some 20-somethings for a fundraising campaign.  One of these kids used to work at a Chipotle, but refused to eat there because, he complained, Chipotle's food is very very bad for your health since they put salt in everything (in the meat, in the beans, in the sauces, etc).  His complaint seemed odd to me since he was smoking as he described this.  But it seemed all the odder when, later in the day, I watched him shake salt onto a pizza.

I'm curious how it's pronounced up in your neighborhood: chi-pole-tee or chi-pote-lay? Something else? In Denver it was mostly the former, in Texas, mostly the latter.

The latter.

I'da lost a bet on that one.

Wait, it's not chi-pottle? Next you're going to tell me you don't pronounce the C in Chanukkah.

Scooter - Maybe Minnesotans recognized that our understanding of umlats would get us nowhere with this word so we had to look it up, resulting in generally accurate pronunciation. (We do maybe tend to make it a long e sound rather than a long a, but we don't say the l before the t.)

I've always thought Chanukkah should rhyme with bazooka.
