Chipotle testing out tofu

on their menu in San Francisco.
Chipotle, concerned about rising meat prices and eager to shore up its popular support among vegetarians, is soon testing tofu as its newest burrito filling in a few San Francisco locations. - HuffPo
Called “Sofritas”, the tofu will be braised with tomatoes, chipotle sauce, and poblano peppers. Ironically, the move to embrace tofu as a meat-free option comes as Chipotle and other fast food restaurants struggle to deal with the rising costs associated with meat production. “Beef and dairy prices have been rising because of the drought, which sent the prices farmers pay for hay and other feed skyrocketing,” writes the AP. - Ecorazzi
