And Chipotle really wants you to try it. So much so, that if you purchase any Sofritas item — burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos — on Monday, January 26, at any Chipotle restaurant in the U.S. or Canada, you will receive a “bounce-back” for a free entree item upon a return visit between January 27th and February 28th.
