National chains are expanding their non-meat choices with options for Vegans and Vegetarians. That includes Chipotle, which has just introduced a plant-based Chorizo and new Lifestyle Bowls which include it as a featured ingredient.
And the chain is promoting it with FREE delivery through Jan. 31.
The plant-based Chorizo is available for a limited time at US locations, including in New York City, for eat-in, take-out and delivery by third-party vendors, including FREE delivery in January.
The non-meat Chorizo is made using real, fresh ingredients grown on a farm, not in a lab.
It is flavored with the Chipotle peppers for which the chain is named, ripe tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra virgin olive oil combine with natural protein from freshly grown peas to deliver a full-flavored vegan protein designed to appeal to both those committed to a meatless diet or trying plant-based protein for the first time.
Plant-Based Chorizo is certified vegan, packed with 16 grams of protein per 4oz serving, and is made without artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, grains, gluten, or soy.

Chipotle Mexican Grill tested the plant-based menu addition in Denver and Indianapolis in 2021, and it was well enough received to launch it nationally in 2022 – again – for a limited time.
Note that there is no official end date for this plant-based option. If Chipotle lets us know an end date, we’ll let you know.
The new non-meat Chorizo is being offered in the chain’s Lifestyle Bowls, which are pre-configured entrées made with 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 are available exclusively on the Chipotle app and Chipotle.com.
