Chipotle has added a new plant-based item to its menus nationwide.
The restaurant chain announced Monday that it will begin offering plant-based chorizo for a limited time across the country. According to a press release, the new menu item is Chipotle’s "second-ever vegan protein" to be released nationally.
The company tested the new menu item in Denver and Indianapolis last summer and the plant-based chorizo had "strong test results," the press release said.
