Fast Casual Chain to Offer Protein-Packed Burrito in 2016
Overdid it on eggnog and Christmas cookies this December? Good news: California Tortilla is offering a healthy new option to help ring in the New Year that’s as delicious as it is nutritious. Introducing the Super Food Burrito, a protein packed menu option that’s available starting January 4, 2016 for a limited time only.
Made with customer’s choice of all-natural, GMO-free Mesquite chicken breast or farm-fresh vegetables, the Super Food Burrito is wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla and filled with Mexican quinoa (with black beans, corn, jalapenos and salsa), Feta cheese, Roma tomatoes and fresh Hass avocado slices drizzled with house-made Avocado-Honey Vinaigrette and topped with slaw made from yet another super food, kale. The Super Food Burrito will be offered for $7.39 at most locations. And for customers watching their carbs, the Super Food Burrito is also available as a bowl.
California Tortilla is always looking for ways to incorporate fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients into its reimagined Mexican menu; each June, the fast casual chain devotes an entire month to celebrating the avocado, partnering with the California Avocado Commission to highlight the benefits of the superfruit.
“Using the freshest, highest-quality ingredients is something we’ve always done at California Tortilla, so the Super Food Burrito seemed like a natural extension to our menu,” said Keith Goldman, Executive Chef and COO, California Tortilla. “It’s packed with protein and superfoods like kale and avocado, and every bit as delicious as our fans have come to expect from our Chef-Inspired Creations.”
