Chipotle Might Be Taking Chorizo Off The Menu!

 

Just last year, Chipotle introduced chorizo to the meat lineup, but it might be on the menu for long!

Business Insider reports that Chipotle is considering get rid of chorizo because it hasn't quite caught on like they had hoped.

BTIG analyst Peter Saleh told Business Insider that chorizo only makes up three percent of Chipotle's sales, so the company is considering cutting it to make room for other items like queso dip.

In fact, chorizo is already gone at a variety of test locations.

Chris Arnold, a representative for Chipotle released a statement to Delish saying:

"In considering any change in our restaurants, in this case the addition of queso, we want to be sure that our operations are still as smooth and efficient as they can be. When we expanded the queso test to include restaurants in and around Colorado, and in Southern California, we tested an option where we would add queso with no other changes (in the California restaurants) and an option where queso would replace something else, in this case chorizo (in restaurants in and around Colorado)."

Chipotle is also reportedly testing out salad with avocado dressing, drive-thrus and ordering kiosks. 

They might make changes to drinks and breakfast items, too.
