After a successful test run at select locations in Denver and Indianapolis last year, Chipotle Mexican Grill has announced that it’s now offering their new Plant-Based Chorizo for a limited time at participating US restaurants nationwide.
Arriving as the brand’s latest menu innovation, Plant-Based Chorizo is made with chipotle peppers, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil combined with natural protein from freshly grown peas to deliver a vegan protein that has deep rich flavor and a slight kick that chorizo fans love and crave.
Packed with 16 grams of protein per 4-ounce serving, Chipotle’s new Plant-Based Chorizo is certified vegan and made without artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, gluten, grains, or soy.
Additionally, and to celebrate the nationwide launch of Plant-Based Chorizo, Chipotle is introducing three new Lifestyle Bowls designed to make healthy eating easy and accessible. The new Lifestyle Bowls are pre-configured entrées made with real, fresh ingredients that align with nutritional preferences like Whole30, Keto, Paleo, High Protein, Vegan, and Vegetarian. New Lifestyle Bowls include:
- Whole30 Salad Bowl: Supergreens Lettuce Blend, Plant-Based Chorizo, Fresh Tomato Salsa, Fajita Veggies, Guacamole.
- Vegetarian Bowl: Supergreens Lettuce Blend, Pinto Beans, Plant-Based Chorizo, Fresh Tomato Salsa, Fajita Veggies, Cheese.
- Vegan Bowl: White Rice, Black Beans, Plant-Based Chorizo, Corn Salsa, Fresh Tomato Salsa, Shredded Romaine Lettuce.
Lifestyle Bowls can be found exclusively in the Chipotle mobile app and online at Chipotle.com.

Free delivery will also be offered on all Lifestyle Bowl orders placed on the Chipotle app or Chipotle.com from January 3 through January 31, 2022.
