Turning up the heat on breakfast at Starbucks.

Starbucks introduced two new sandwiches on February 16, 2016. (They may have been available on the 15th in many stores). People are loving them! The first one is the Spicy Chorizo, Monterey Jack & Egg breakfast sandwich:

Starbucks describes this new sandwich as "Spiced chorizo (sausage), Monterey Jack cheese and a fluffy egg with caramelized onions on potato bread." In my opinion, the potato bread is much tastier than any of the other breakfast sandwich breads.

The next new breakfast sandwich is the Ancho-Chipotle Chicken Panini.

Starbucks describes this one as, "Shredded chicken breast in ancho-chipotle sauce, fire-roasted poblano peppers, red onion, Gouda cheese and spicy cilantro pesto on a ciabatta roll."

This new sandwich doesn't necessarily fit perfectly as a just a breakfast sandwich. It feels like it could be a lunch item too.

Both of the new sandwiches pair nicely with a flat white or a latte. They're pretty spicy, and the having a milky drink seems to cut the spiciness a bit. I should mention that I'm a spice-wuss. Others will love these two new sandwiches. I think they're great too, but I just notice that they have quite a kick to them for Starbuckian food!

Let me know how you like these two new items.
