Dudes, this bag makes me happy.
Not just because it's always a good read, but also because it also holds the secrets of the universe and salsa.
Well, okay, maybe not the secrets of the universe, but definitely salsa. Always salsa. Don't even try to go to Chipotle and not get salsa, because that is not okay. (Unless you're going to Chipotle to get guacamole, in which case it's probably okay. I wouldn't know because avocados kind of freak me out a little bit.)
Recently Chipotle released a new vegetarian/vegan option they have confusingly titled "Sofritas." I have no freaking idea what "sofritas" means. Based on my extensive first-hand research it might mean "tofu" or it might mean "nuggets of deliciousness." Either way, they're absolutely amazing and you should eat them, like, ASAP.
I have to admit, I went into this whole sofritas thing pretty nervous. I am not a trusting vegetarian, thanks to accidentally consuming some chicken sneakily concealed in a meat-free pasta dish a couple of years ago, so downing my first bite of this "mystery meat" was slightly nerve-wracking. After that, though, it was awesome.
I used to get the all-veggie (and cheese and rice) burrito bowl from Chipotle, which was awesome, but as one can imagine, it can be difficult to get excited about a bowl full of vegetables. Now that the sofritas bowl exists, I can be excited about squished up soybeans! Yay! (I'm pretty sure it's soybeans.....I'm pretty sure it's tofu.....I really hope it's tofu.....)
The sofritas filling has definitely blown me away, and it may have won Chipotle my number-one vegetarian-friendly fast-food-joint award. I feel like I need to do more research before I hand out such an honor. Yes, definitely. Much more research. Three sofritas burritos please!
What about you? Have you tried Chipotle's sofritas? Would you try Chipotle's sofritas even though it's "icky vegetarian food"? What's your favorite thing to get at Chipotle? Talk to me in the comments!
