Chipotle Is Testing Plant-Based Chorizo in Denver and Indianapolis
Chipotle Mexican Grill just launched its latest menu innovation, Plant-Based Chorizo, in test markets—Denver and Indianapolis.
Chipotle is testing plant-based chorizo in select markets—this latest menu innovation will debut in Denver and Indianapolis. Plant-based chorizo is the brand’s first new plant-based protein option since the launch of Sofritas in 2014.
Chipotle’s New Plant-Based Chorizo
Chipotle’s plant-based chorizo recipe aligns with the brand’s industry-leading Food with Integrity standards and delivers a craveable plant-based protein using only real ingredients.
Chipotle’s new plant-based chorizo has the deep, rich flavor of chorizo and is made with ingredients grown on a farm, not in a lab. Ancho chili and chipotle peppers, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil combine with natural protein sourced from freshly grown peas.
Chipotle’s plant-based chorizo is certified vegan and made with ingredients you can pronounce. This delicious plant-based option, packed with 20g of protein per serving, is free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives and is made without grains, gluten, or soy.
“Plant-based lifestyles have continued to accelerate in popularity, and as a longtime leader in the category, we are exploring ways to give more variety to our fans,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer at Chipotle. “We used real ingredients to create a plant-based protein with a deep, rich chorizo flavor that can be enjoyed by everyone.” The company is an innovator in the food industry and is committed to providing a more inclusive food system.
So whether you’re vegan or veg-curious, enjoy plant-based chorizo in Denver and Indianapolis for a limited time.
Vegan Options at Chipotle
In addition to the plant-based chorizo at select locations, you can build your own bowl, salad, burrito, tacos, and more at Chipotle with vegan-friendly fillings and toppings like Sofritas, black or pinto beans, white or brown rice, fajita veggies, lettuce, cilantro, guacamole, a selection of salsas, and more.
From August 19-29, Chipotle will offer a $0 delivery fee on all plant-based chorizo orders via the Chipotle app and Chipotle.com.
