NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., — Chipotle’s Carne Asada has returned for the third time. Fans can experience Carne Asada in Chipotle’s customizable Hand-Crafted Quesadilla exclusively available on the Chipotle app, Chipotle.ca and third-party delivery platforms. Carne Asada fans can experience their favorite protein in Chipotle’s customizable quesadilla with melted Monterey Jack cheese, optional fajita veggies and three sides.
Chipotle’s Carne Asada is marinated, then seasoned on the grill with a blend of signature spices like cumin, coriander and oregano and finished with fresh squeezed lime, hand-chopped cilantro, for a deeply rich, satisfying flavor. The protein is officially approved for the Whole30 program and is compliant with keto and paleo diets. Head chef Nevielle Panthaky recommends a Carne Asada Quesadilla with fajita veggies and sides of cilantro lime white rice, black beans and sour cream for dipping.
Carne Asada at Chipotle is one of the brand’s most requested menu items on social media and is more than just a delectable menu item; it is a testament to the brand’s commitment to Food with Integrity. Since all of Chipotle’s beef is raised responsibly, with a vegetarian diet and no antibiotics and no added hormones, Chipotle estimates that only five per cent of the U.S. beef supply meets its standards. While Carne Asada is a limited time offering, Chipotle is committed to partnering with new farmers and ranchers that align with its Food with Integrity principles to grow its supply chain.
“Over the past few years, our fans’ passion for Carne Asada has rivaled any other Chipotle menu item,” says Chris Brandt, Chief Brand Officer. “Now, we’ve answered the call, brought back this iconic protein and introduced an entirely new way to try Carne Asada with the Carne Asada Quesadilla.”
