Look, most Floridians are happy (or at least relieved) that medical marijuana is likely to be legalized here after the November elections, but please can we just not with the weed wordplay? If we start now, we'll be drowning in it by fall. Yes, I know, I'm guilty of it myself, but I make a solemn pledge right now: "Burweedo" is the only pot pun I will make this year. In writing, anyway. Scout's honor.
On Wednesday, July 9, Tijuana Flats will introduce their first limited time offer promotion featuring three new burritos: Pie Roller, Tree Hugger and Sweet Hemptation. All burritos will be wrapped in hemp tortillas, prepared Megajuana size and will vary in ingredients.
The burritos were developed by employees of Tijuana Flats. A contest was held companywide to create their favorite burritos using only two new products. Winners were chosen by a panel of judges and winners were awarded with prizes and bragging rights. Over 20 entries were received.
“This is one of our first true limited time offers that we have introduced companywide. I am confident that guests will love these new hemp burritos. The uniqueness of the ingredients coupled with the hemp tortilla is sure to leave our guests wanting more” said Tijuana Flats CEO Brad Kaemmer.
This is the first time Tijuana Flats has ever used hemp with a menu item. Hemp tortillas include hemp seeds, which are rich in protein and Omega-3.
The “Pie Roller” has pepperoni, red sauce, powerlite cheese, fajita peppers, onions and mushrooms and is toasted with red sauce, pepperoni and cheese on top. A vegetarian option, The “Tree Hugger,” is made up of roasted poblanos, mushrooms, onions, cilantro, scallion, cream cheese, tortilla chips, cheese and queso. The “Sweet Hemptation” includes crispy chicken, chopped churros, cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, queso, cheese and bacon. Each specialty burrito is priced at $8.40 at all locations.
