There is a new addition to the Chipotle menu, and it is Plant-based!
Made from Chipotle peppers, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, extra virgin olive, and natural protein from freshly grown peas, Chipotle’s plant-based chorizo is available for a limited time at U.S. locations.
According to Fast Casual, the protein first hit in August 2021 in Denver and Indianapolis during a test phase. The test results must have positive feedback because the brand will feature its second-ever vegan protein on a national stage.
CMO, Chris Brandit says, “We are thrilled to introduce guests to our new, flavor-packed Plant-based chorizo during a season when healthier options are top of mind”.
Also, he adds, “Plant-based chorizo is our best chorizo ever and proves that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to enjoy a vegan or vegetarian protein.”
Plus, Chipotle is adding three Lifestyle Bowls powered by Plant-based chorizo. They include:
Whole30 Salad Bowl: Supergreens lettuce blend, Plant-based chorizo, tomato Salsa, fajita veggies, guacamole.
Vegetarian Bowl: Supergreens lettuce blend, pinto beans, plant-based chorizo, tomato salsa, fajita veggies, cheese
Vegan Bowl: White rice, black beans, plant-based chorizo, Corn Salsa, tomato salsa, shredded romaine lettuce
Now if you want to grab your hands on these Lifestyle Bowls, you won’t be able to get them in the restaurants. The Lifestyle Bowls will only be available on Chiptole.com and the Chipotle app.
