Chipotle is working hard to win over old and new customers alike by introducing a new item to their menu that is sure to make your mouth water. Recently announcing their plans to venture into the burger game, they’re now back to focusing on their burritos and tacos with the introduction of a spicy new option. Heat things up at lunch or dinner with Chipotle’s new chorizo.


Available to enjoy in their burritos and tacos as well as salads and bowls, the ground sausage will be a lighter chorizo than you’re used to. A blend of pork and white-meat chicken, it’s seasoned with paprika, toasted cumin and chipotle peppers, making it definitely worth a bite or two.


Right now, the new option is only available in Columbus, Ohio; New York City (Manhattan locations); Sacramento and San Diego, California, as well as at one restaurant in both Denver and Washington, DC. If things go as well as planned, then all other Chipotle locations will be able to enjoy the chorizo this fall.

With the promise of a “perfect char,” this could very well be your new fave Chipotle order.
