Chipotle Mexican Grill has announced the return of its popular protein, Carne Asada. This will be the third time that Carne Asada has made a comeback to Chipotle's menu. It's been a fan favorite for years ever since its debut in September 2019. During its first run, more than 10 million customers ordered Carne Asada, with almost half of those customers being first-time guests at Chipotle. The brand reintroduced Carne Asada to the menu in 2020, and it has since become one of the brand's most requested menu items on social media. Head in and get a taste!

Fajita Quesadillas At Chipotle
Chipotle recently announced that they will be bringing Fajita Quesadillas to the menu!
