Chipotle Introduces New Vegan Burritos and Tacos Across the Country

J. Kenji López-Alt 24 comments

They're called "Sofritas," they're made of tofu, they're 100 percent vegan, and they're pretty darn delicious. The saucy, crumbled, sausage-like filling, which can be ordered in any of Chipotle's burritos, tacos, or salads, has thus far been available in select markets, mainly on the West Coast. Today, Chipotle announced that starting March 3, they'd be expanding its availability to both coasts and several markets in between, with plans to roll it out across the country in the works. It's the first nationwide new menu item the company has introduced since its inception. More

Chipotle Shrimp and Cheese Torta

Combining cocoa, sweet ancho, spicy, smoky chipotle and toasty, fried almonds results in an earthy, slightly sweet flavor palette. This salsa is a bit on the thick side, which makes it perfect as a chip dip, or to slather onto tacos or quesadillas. More

Taste Test: Olo's Chipotle Paste Vs. Canned Chipotle Chilies

Taste Tests J. Kenji López-Alt 32 comments

I personally don't have much of a problem with working through a can before they start to expire. It takes a long time for that to happen; I mean, by their very nature, chipotles are designed not to go bad. They're smoked, which is a powerful preservative, then packed into a salty, vinegary sauce, which further inhibits bacterial growth. That said, there have been, on occasion, a few instances in which my opened cans of chipotle chilies languishing under wraps in the back of the fridge have become accidental science experiments over the course of a few months, and I can certainly imagine a home cook who only uses them on occasion asking, "Why should I buy a whole can when I only need a couple of chilies?"

Spicy Tortilla Crisps with Queso Fundito from 'Salty Snacks'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

When it comes to game-day snacks, there are few people I know that'll turn down chips and cheese dip (I'm pretty sure all of these folks are vegan anyhow). Even my friends who scoff at the concept of queso are known to sneak bites of the gooey stuff when they think no one is looking. It's not too hard to make either snack from scratch, but homemade versions are rarely more exciting than Tostitos. Enter Cynthia Nims's new cookbook Salty Snacks. She elevates chips and queso just enough to turn heads, while still keeping the dish oozy and comforting. More

Which Chain Makes the Best Burrito Bowls?

Los Angeles Tacos Farley Elliott 20 comments

Yet, plenty of chains offer bowls as viable alternatives to the tacos and burritos I've come to love. So be it. With similar (or, on occasion, exact) ingredients as what's found in my burrito, I can swing a bowl. Heck, I usually opt for the ice cream cup over the cone, so there! Now, down to business. Which Mexican chain makes the best bowls? More

Los Angeles Tacos Farley Elliott 7 comments

Over the past month, we've covered many different chain tacos (see: carnitas, steak, ground beef, and fish).

What to Eat Near Navy Pier in Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

The biggest tourist attraction in Chicago by a large number is Navy Pier, and though it's not my favorite place to visit, it's easy to see why it's so popular. Just don't eat there. With so many enticing and cheaper places nearby, you'll have a much better chance of eating well if you leave. More
