After a seemingly interminable trip through the Burrito Day Advent Calendar, National Burrito Day is finally here. In observance of this sacred pastime, Chipotle has revealed exactly who eats the most burritos on a per-person level, so that we might learn more about ourselves and our relationship to the best food that also resembles balled-up socks.
We'll share some other fun facts as well (for instance, Ohioians order more cheese and sour cream per person than any other state), but here's a handy map that shows every state's burrito-consumption habits. The darker the state is, the more burritos ordered per person. And just below that, we've listed the complete ranking (which doesn't include the states without Chipotle -- Alaska, Hawaii, or South Dakota -- but does include Washington, D.C.).

North Dakota 6. New Mexico 5. Idaho 4. Colorado 3. Utah 2. Montana 1. Wyoming
As you can see, Wyoming took home the golden burrito here, but there are some other notable frontrunners in other categories. For instance, Maine orders the most guac of any state. Wyoming, Montana, and New Mexico, on the other hand, order the most meat, which checks out with the rugged reputation of those states. Finally, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona are the states that are the fondest of hot salsa.
So, celebrate and eat your own burrito, knowing the state of Wyoming is with you, and that it's just 365 short days until the next National Burrito Day.
