Artisan Bistro, Irvine, Calif., announced its new line of artisan burritos, featuring a savory blend of high-quality sustainable proteins, organic vegetables, grains and Artisan Bistro burritosspices, as well as sustainably-caught wild Alaskan salmon, antibiotic-free beef, free-range chicken and meatless ‘pork carnitas,’ all wrapped in one-of-a-kind organic gluten-free tortillas.

“Many people are busy and barely find time to eat on-the-run, so hand-held meal options have become wildly popular,” says Leo Griffin, chief executive officer. “To create our burritos, we took one of the nation’s favorite convenience foods and gave it our signature artisan upgrade with bold spices, clean proteins and organic whole grains and vegetables that consumers can feel good about eating and feeding their families.”

Varieties include:

·         Beef, Jack Cheese & Ancho Chili. A classic Oaxacan-inspired mix made with organic brown rice, robust ancho chilis, red bell peppers, onions and antibiotic-free beef.

·         Chicken Tinga & Chipotle. A traditional Mexican-inspired wrap made with organic brown rice, onions, cilantro, smoky chipotle and all-natural chicken.

·         Wild Alaskan Salmon & Poblano. A blend of poblano peppers and wild Alaskan salmon, combined with organic brown rice, spinach and parsley.

·         Meatless Carnitas & Salsa Verde. A savory combination of meatless carnitas, tomatillos and onions.

Artisan Bistro meals are available in natural food stores and grocers, including Whole Foods, Target, Safeway, Publix, Wegmans and Sprouts, nationwide. Each 7-ounce burrito boasts a suggested retail price of $3.79.
