Chipotle is testing new Plant-Based Chorizo at select locations in Denver and Indianapolis for a limited time.

Developed in-house by Chipotle’s culinary team over the past year, new Plant-Based Chorizo is made with a blend of ancho chili and chipotle peppers, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil, all combined with natural protein sourced from freshly grown peas.
The brand’s new Plant-Based Chorizo is certified vegan and boasts 20 grams of protein per serving. It’s also free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives and is made without grains, gluten, or soy.
To help encourage fans to try the new plant-based option, Chipotle will be offering free delivery ($0 delivery fee) on all Plant-Based Chorizo orders via the Chipotle app and Chipotle.com from August 19 through August 29, 2021.
Plant-Based Chorizo represents the brand’s first new plant-based protein option since the debut of Sofritas back in 2014.
