Chipotle Welcomes New Plant-Based Chorizo

Chipotle welcomes new Plant-Based Chorizo for a limited time nationwide to kickoff 2022.

Chipotle's Plant-Based Chorizo features pea protein as a base, seasoned with chipotle peppers, tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil. The chain describes its as having a "deep, rich flavor and a slight kick." Plant-Based Chorizo is certified vegan and made without artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, grains, gluten, or soy.

The latest plant-based protein addition follows a successful test in Denver and Indianapolis in August of last year and marks the second vegan protein that Chipotle has offered nationally (the first being their regularly offered Sofritas). The chain previously offered a traditional chorizo that was eventually discontinued.

Along with the launch of Plant-Based Chorizo, Chipotle introduces three new Lifestyle Bowls featuring Plant-Based Chorizo. Lifestyle Bowls are preconfigured entrees that can only be ordered online through the Chipotle website and app. They feature a combination of ingredients aimed at certain nutritional preferences such as keto, paleo, high-protein, and vegan diets. The three new Lifestyle Bowls are:

- Plant-Based Chorizo Whole30 Salad Bowl - Supergreens lettuce blend, Plant-Based Chorizo, tomato salsa, fajita veggies, and guacamole.

- Plant-Based Chorizo Vegetarian Bowl - Supergreens Lettuce Blend, pinto beans, Plant-Based Chorizo, tomato salsa, fajita veggies, and cheese.

- Plant-Based Chorizo Vegan Bowl - White rice, black beans, Plant-Based Chorizo, corn salsa, tomato salsa, and shredded Romaine lettuce.

To promote new meatless chorizo offering, Chipotle is offering $0 delivery fees on all Plant-Based Chorizo orders placed through the Chipotle app or through January 9, 2022. Additionally, $0 delivery fees are also being offered on all Lifestyle Bowl orders placed through the Chipotle app or website through January 31, 2022.
