If you’re new to plant-based eating, finding meals when you’re out with friends or family can sometimes be challenging. Luckily, many of your favorite chains offer delicious plant-based options, including Chipotle.

Chipotle is my go-to spot when I want to keep things simple. Fortunately, this chain restaurant has locations in most cities, is well loved by many, and offers a bunch of plant-based ingredients to add to your burritos, tacos, and bowls!

Here are all the plant-based menu items at Chipotle:

  • Vegan Chorizo

For a limited time, Chipotle is trialing its own vegan chorizo. Ancho and chipotle peppers, tomato paste, crushed garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, and extra-virgin olive oil add a rich flavor to the savory new item.

Select Chipotle locations in the Indianapolis, Indiana, and Denver, Colorado, areas are offering the plant-based chorizo as part of a pilot launch.

  • Vegan Lifestyle Bowls

Cilantro-lime brown rice, black beans, sofritas (tofu), tomato and corn salsa, and lettuce make up this nutritious bowl.

  • Corn and Flour Tortillas

All of Chipotle’s tortillas are vegan, so choose from corn or flour tortillas for tacos and burritos.–KhKHD/

  • Black and Pinto Beans

No vegan burrito would be complete without some yummy, protein-rich beans. Both black and pinto are seasoned with onions, garlic, and a blend of savory spices.

  • White and Brown Cilantro-Lime Rice

Steamed with bay leaves, seasoned with lime juice, and garnished with cilantro, Chipotle’s rice is out of this world.

  • Fajita Vegetables

A mix of caramelized red onions and bell peppers, the fajita veggies are seasoned with oregano, adding the perfect combination of sweet and savory to your dish.

  • Sofritas

In 2013 Chipotle introduced “sofritas”—an organic tofu option braised with chipotle chilies, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices—to their U.S. menu. The company has since brought this offering to the U.K.!

  • Salsas

All of Chipotle’s salsas are vegan, so load up the flavor with fresh tomato salsa (mild), roasted chili corn salsa (medium), tomatillo green-chili salsa (medium hot), or tomatillo red-chili salsa (hot).

  • Guacamole

Made with fresh avocados, red onion, jalapeño, and cilantro, guacamole is loved by everyone. And if you’re skipping the sofritas, veggie burritos include guacamole for free!

  • Romaine Lettuce

No surprise here, but we did promise to include ALL the plant-based menu items. Plus, if you really love your greens, you can opt for a Chipotle salad! Just be sure to skip the vinaigrette.

  • Chips

Made fresh every day, these bad boys are seasoned with a dash of lime and kosher salt. Try them with guacamole or your favorite salsas!

Pushing for more animal-friendly menu options is a great way to make plant-based eating easier for you and millions of other compassionate consumers. Please take a moment to ask Chipotle to add more vegan options to their menu! You can leave a message on their Facebook page.
