You might want to sit down to receive this life-changing news, guac lovers: There’s now a way to get your avocado fix at Chipotle that doesn’t cost extra. In a move that could win over the hearts of brunch-loving millennials everywhere, the Mexican fast-food chain is currently experimenting with tostadas (the Mexican-food-style spin on avocado toast) at its test location in New York City, according to USA Today.

The item—which is a total steal at just $3.15—consists of a crispy corn tortilla topped with guacamole, salsa, lettuce, and cheese. And since it’s only 380 calories, it makes for a healthier fat-filled afternoon pick-me-up than you might normally get at the eatery.

The potential menu addition is in alignment with Chipotle’s initiative to health-ify its food options after setbacks it’s navigated in the past few years—including several reports of food-safety issues and resulting stock-value drops as recently as this past December.

There’s no word on when the verdict will land about whether the avocado tostada becomes an official menu item or not. But considering the world’s love for avo toast is only growing (there’s a scientific reason you crave it, after all!), the fiber-packed odds are definitely in your favor.
