Chipotle continues to tempt our tummies with new items including burgers, chorizo, and even dessert. And now they鈥檝e targeted our love of all things cheesy by testing out queso (something the chain had previously claimed they鈥檇 NEVER add to their menu).

Chipotle Is Testing Deliciously Cheesy Queso Dip

The most requested item not currently on Chipotle鈥檚 menu, queso will apparently be available as an entr茅e, on the side, or with chips. Yum, yum, and YUM!

鈥淎ll of our competitors sell queso, and we know some customers don鈥檛 come to Chipotle because we don鈥檛 offer it,鈥 said Chipotle CEO Steve Ells in an internal memo, according to Eater New York. 鈥淏ut because we refuse to use industrial additives, added colors, flavors or preservatives in our food, it鈥檚 very difficult to make queso that meets our standards.鈥

That鈥檚 why they鈥檝e taken the queso recipe testing to their brand new Chipotle NEXT Kitchen in NYC, the company鈥檚 only public-facing test kitchen, which opened on Monday.

Business Insider reports that the current queso offering is cheddar-based, which gives it a 鈥済rainy鈥 texture that鈥檚 鈥渃loser to a chowder than nacho cheese.鈥 Saying that the graininess isn鈥檛 in fact a bad thing, they also note the queso features 鈥渟avory, rich flavors鈥 that have a 鈥渟low, pleasant, smoky burn.鈥 Mmm!

This certainly sounds like an item that needs to make it on the nationwide menu ASAP.
