Ah, finally a test of the sofritas option will be coming to Chicago. I'm not a huge Chipotle fan, but I'd try this if I were near a Chipotle for lunch.

Chipotle plans to introduce shredded tofu to all its Chicago area stores on Monday for a limited time after testing the vegetarian option on the West Coast.

The "Sofritas" will be braised with chiles and spices and available at the chain’s 83 Chicagoland locations.

Currently, the only option for vegetarians is getting black beans or fajita vegetables as the base of their meals instead of meat. Chipotle's pinto beans are made with pork, although the company said recently it will soon remove the meat to give vegetarians another option.

Chipotle didn’t say how long the tofu test would last. The decision on whether to add tofu to the menu permanently will depend on its performance in the region.

I really like it! I hope they make it a regular menu item at all their locations soon. It's especially good with guacamole... lick.gif

I agree! It's great to have another option! I'll have to try it with the guac. From what I've heard, it'll be debuting next Monday, October 21, in the Chicago area.

I had this a while ago, it was great. My issue with Chipotle is the sodium levels in everything, the tortilla for a burrito alone is something crazy like 1000 mg.

I love salt  and have low blood pressure. I want this tofu thing to take off...lots of Omnis like to eat tofu because it's a healthier alternative...we're counting on you...

Just noticed this at the downtown Evanston Chipolte the other day. I didn't try it, though. It was my first time eating at Chipolte in a while, and I just wanted my old "usual" order that I used to get all the time from the Chipolte down the street of where I used to live in Florida.
