Chipotle’s Vegan Options

The quick-casual Mexican food chain gains accolades as it expands its vegan menu options.

It is now even easier for Chicago-area vegans to eat at Chipotle Mexican Grill. Earlier this week, Chipotle restaurants throughout the Chicago metropolitan area added posole to their menus. Chipotle’s posole—a popular Mexican soup traditionally made with meat—is vegan, with a base of tomato, hominy, vegetables, and spices. Posole is the first soup to be offered by the popular fast-food restaurant, but not Chiptole's first effort at vegan cuisine. Many locations offer Garden Blend, a faux meat, for its burritos, tacos, and salad bowls. Chipotle is the winner of this year’s peta2 Libby Award for Most Vegan-Friendly Restaurant Chain.
