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 for a limited time only.
Made with the 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, jalapeños, and salsa), Feta cheese, Roma tomatoes, and fresh Hass avocado slices. It’s then 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,” says Keith Goldman, executive chef and COO at 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.”
