Cauliflower is one of the coolest, most versatile vegetables out there. It can be enjoyed raw, steamed, boiled and it can even turn into a low-carb substitute for mashed potatoes, pizza crust, and rice! Better yet, cauliflower is chock full of fiber and B-vitamins making it an excellent veggie to add to your diet more regularly. Well, buckle up friends because Chipotle Mexican Grill just announced that they will be testing new cauliflower rice at select restaurants!

Chipotle’s new cauliflower rice is made with real, grilled cauliflower and features a delicious, fresh cilantro-lime flavor! The initial test will take place across 55 restaurants in Denver and throughout Wisconsin starting July 15, 2020. Chipotle fans located in the participating test locations will have a chance to try the Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice for an additional $2. It’ll be available in-restaurant and by digital orders through the participating locations. Let’s all hope that this is a successful test because we think a nationwide rollout would be epic!

“To date, one out of three new menu item requests from Chipotle customers is for Cauliflower Rice,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. “We’ve answered the call from fans and created a better-for-you option that puts a delicious twist on our classic white rice recipe by using the same fresh cilantro and lime ingredients and culinary techniques.”
