Chipotle to test tofu menu item in Bay Area
Last Updated: 316 days ago
DENVER - Chipotle Mexican Grill is testing a new burrito filler that it hopes will appeal to vegetarians and vegans.
Sofritas — made with shredded organic tofu braised with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos and spices — will be tested at seven San Francisco Bay area restaurants starting Feb. 12.
It also will be available in tacos, burrito bowls and salads.
Denver-based Chipotle previously tested a "Garden Blend" vegetarian item but wasn't satisfied with it and started developing Sofritas.
