For plant-based foodies seeking a burrito-fix, a game-changing option is about to hit the counter.
Quesada Burritos and Tacos is launching a Beyond Meat burrito across Canada tomorrow.
And following the success of the Beyond Meat burger hitting A&W’s kitchens, there’s no doubt this new offering is going to make an impact.

“More of our customers are identifying as flexitarians and requesting plant-based options so we’re thrilled to be Canada’s first Mexican chain to offer the Beyond Meat Burrito,” said Steve Gill, founder and chief recipe officer at Quesada Burritos and Tacos, in a press release.
“Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein that’s juicy and satisfying to anyone — no matter their dietary preferences.”

Quesada’s house-made recipe for the burrito brings Mexican flavours and the spicy heat of Habanero pepper to the Feisty Crumbles, resulting in an extra kick.
And the burrito can be customized with an array of fillings including Mexican slaw, guacamole and a variety of salsas.
The only gluten-free and soy-free crumble on the market, Beyond Meat’s version is made with pea protein. This means you get the flavour and texture of ground beef, with half the saturated fat and no cholesterol or antibiotics.
“We pride ourselves in creating delicious, sustainable protein for the center of the plate that enables consumers to continue eating what they love, in this case satisfying tacos and burritos, while enjoying the health and environmental benefits of plant-based meat,” said Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat Founder and CEO.
From the health and environmental benefits to the anticipation of delicious meatless flavour, this new menu addition is beyond exciting.
