Are Chipotle sofritas worth it?

Are Chipotle sofritas worth it?

Today Chipotle rolled out their new tofu dish, called sofritas, in all Chicago area restaurants. I’m already a fan of tofu and I think Chipotle is a decent option in terms of fast food so in the name of blogging, I had to try it.

We start with organic tofu Hodo Soy that we shred and braise with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices. The result is a delicious, spicy tofu that will give vegans and carnivores something they will both love.

Franky and I picked up lunch from Chipotle today and sat down at home to enjoy our meal. From the first bite, I knew I was in for a tasty meal. Whatever your intentions are, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or just looking to try something new, I definitely recommend the sofritas.

While I love tofu when it’s done well, it’s an easy ingredient to mess up. I’ve also never eaten tofu with chipotle chilis or poblano peppers, so I was a little skeptical.

At Chipotle you have your choice of ordering tacos, a burrito, a bowl or a salad. I came in for the salad and walked out with the bowl. What can I say? My stomach was growling and warm rice sounded great on a chilly day.

I ordered a bowl of brown rice, roasted corn salsa, black beans, guacamole and sofritas. The sofritas were excellent. I love spicy food (I add all types of hot sauce to nearly everything) and the sofritas were perfectly spiced. It says a lot that the hot sauce stayed in my fridge.

They were cooked perfectly, not too dry (or even worse) too mushy. This was a completely filling meal. Honestly, I could have eaten half and still would have been satisfied.

It’s Meatless Monday. What are you eating tonight?
