Chipotle are once again stepping into the world of plant-based foods.

The chain is now testing out plant-based chorizo, which will be certified vegan and contain 20 grams of protein.

Plant-Based Chorizo is made of peas, tomato paste, chili and chipotle peppers, crush garlic, paprika, and extra virgin olive oil.

To give people more of a reason to try it out, Chipotle will be offering free delivery of the Plant-Based Chorizo now through August 29 on the Chipotle app or site.

The chain first attempt at plant-based proteins happened when they debuted their Sofritas in 2014.
