I personally did not try the queso at Chipotle, but I’ve only heard bad stuff about it, so I guess it’s not a huge surprise that the burrito chain decided to re-do their cheese dip.
Chipotle released the queso last September, and it was met with…less than exemplary reviews from the general public.
So the company pulled the cheese dip from their menu and decided to give it an overhaul. Like all Chipotle menu items, the queso will be all-natural with organic ingredients. Word on the street is that Queso 2.0 will have less of a smoky flavor and will get a little more heat to it.
For those of you inclined to give Chipotle a second chance, here’s your opportunity: if you show up to Chipotle on Tuesday, December 12 wearing your “cheesiest Christmas sweater,” you’ll get some free queso. So they REALLY want people to try this new version.
Rumor on the street is that Chipotle’s next new item will be – wait for it – NACHOS. Let’s hope this new queso makes the cut because I’m already imagining nacho combinations.
