Yes, Chipotle already introduced queso to its menu, but another top-requested food is now available. By popular demand, quesadillas have debuted at the Tex-Mex restaurant chain, but there’s only one way you can get them.
Featuring a Monterey Jack cheese base on preservative-free flour tortillas, the new menu item is available with chicken, steak, carnitas, barbacoa, sofritas, or fajita veggies. The quesadilla is folded and pressed using a new custom oven that, according to a press release, perfectly melts the cheese and allows restaurants to make the item quickly.
The quesadillas come in 100% compostable packaging that has three additional sections for your choice of salsa, sour cream, or guac (which costs a bit extra, of course). The only caveat is you can only order them online or via the app as the item is a digital-only offer. There are also only available in the U.S. and Canada.
According to Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer at Chipotle, the demand on social media is what compelled the brand to expand it to nationwide markets.
“We’re so excited to answer the call from fans and introduce one of the most highly anticipated menu items in our brand’s history,” Brandt said. “The Hand-Crafted Quesadilla brings so many new possibilities to our menu, and fans will love exploring fresh flavor combinations through its sides and salsa options.”
If you feel like switching up your Chipotle order or were one of the many demanding quesadillas, you can take advantage of the digital-only offer March 11-21.
