Chipotle Chorizo Burrito
Chorizo is Chipotle Mexican Grill's first new menu introduction in two years.
The spicy chicken and pork sausage will appear on menus Wednesday in restaurants in Columbus, Ohio; Sacramento, Calif.; and San Diego, as well as New York units in Manhattan; one restaurant in Denver; and at the unit in Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport.
All restaurants across the nearly 2,000-unit chain will serve the new protein by this fall.
Chorizo is the first new menu item introduced by Chipotle since it rolled out Sofritas, an organic tofu option, in 2014.
The chorizo is seasoned with paprika, toasted cumin and chipotle peppers, and is seared on the grill in restaurants to achieve a perfect char.
