POTOMAC, Md. — Get swept away with the new Taco Tornado Burrito at California Tortilla®, a fast-casual Mexican-inspired restaurant franchise serving fresh, made-to-order dishes. For a limited-time only, guests can try this new burrito infusing savory flavors from a cheeseburger with the spice of Mexican cuisine. The Taco Tornado Burrito is available at all California Tortilla locations now through January 13, 2019.

The Taco Tornado Burrito combines one of America’s favorite foods, cheeseburgers, with California Tortilla’s signature flavor blends. Using ingredients like rice, taco beef, queso, pickled jalapenos, salsa, fresh avocado and Screamin’ sauce, customers can enjoy this mouthwatering flavor combination for a limited time.

Struggling to find the perfect name for this new and delicious burrito, California Tortilla created a contest on its social media channels to crowdsource a new name. After seeing only the ingredients, loyal Cal Tort fans could submit ideas in the comments using #NameThisCTBurrito. Suggestions from participants poured in and were narrowed to the top three – Baja Beef Burrito, Chesseburg-rito and Taco Tornado Burrito. People were able to vote for their favorite and “Taco Tornado Burrito,” as suggested by Instagram user @rachel_jones5, was selected as the top choice. She was gifted a one-of-a-kind California Tortilla Swag bag and is proudly credited on all the marketing materials for this limited-time offer.

“We are extremely excited to have incorporated our dedicated fan base into the creation of this limited-time offer,” said Keith Goldman, California Tortilla Chief Operating Officer. “At California Tortilla, we’re known for our experimentation with global flavors and unique specialty menu offerings that our customers look forward to several times a year. We’re looking forward to offering this new item to our Cal Tort fans.”

Guests can purchase the regular size Taco Tornado Burrito for $7.99 and a small for $7.19 at all California Tortilla locations. For an extra flavor blast, guests are encouraged to add bacon for an additional $1.

Serving made-to-order burritos, bowls, street tacos, quesadillas and salads, California Tortilla is dedicated to serving farm-fresh, never frozen ingredients where everything is hand prepared in small batches daily in scratch cook kitchens. The innovative menu is grounded in a foundation of Mexican cuisine and features 25 unique chef-created dishes, such as the Korean BBQ Burrito, Blackened Fish Tacos and California Sunset Bowl. Every California Tortilla features a Wall-of-Flame, a towering display of 75 distinct hot sauces, ranging from mild to tongue-melting, allowing guests to further customize the flavor and heat level of their meal.

“Our communities – including our employees and our customers – across North Carolina are dealing with the destruction of Florence, and we want to do what we can to help rebuild,” said Brian Niccol, Chipotle CEO. “Since the storm hit, we’ve fed volunteers, worked with our local suppliers to donate food, and made sure our employees were compensated even when restaurants were closed. Being part of the community means taking care of each other, and we hope to do just that by raising funds for the United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund.”

“United Way is grateful to work with organizations, like Chipotle, that share our commitment to helping those in crisis find a path to recovery,” said Mary Sellers, U.S. president, United Way Worldwide. “The Florence-affected areas of North Carolina are, and will continue to face severe challenges. United Way is continually assessing storm damage and resulting needs. With Chipotle and its customers, we’ll continue to fight for the health and safety of every North Carolinian affected by Florence.”

To contribute to the cause, residents can simply visit any Chipotle in North Carolina at any time from open to close (10:45 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.) on Sunday, September 30, and half the pre-tax proceeds of all food and beverage sales will be donated to United Way. Digital, catering and takeout orders placed for September 30, in addition to any orders placed in the restaurants, will also be included in this fundraising effort.

In addition to the fundraiser scheduled in the 60 North Carolina restaurants, Chipotle has donated more than 1,500 burritos to feed first responders over the last two weeks. Chipotle also made a cash donation to the Red Cross for immediate emergency efforts.
