(NEW YORK) — OK, Chipotle fans, big news: There’s a new menu item in town, and you’d better believe it looks delicious.
The new quesadillas, a melty Monterey jack cheese-filled flour tortilla stuffed with a choice of meat, sofritas or fajita veggies, are served with three sides — but sorry, guac is still extra.
The menu item is cut into triangular pieces and served in 100% compostable packaging with three compartmentalized sections for salsas or sides, including fresh tomato salsa, sour cream, or hand-mashed guac.
When the fast-casual Mexican restaurant chain announced the new item there was just one stipulation: It’s only available online.
Chief Marketing Officer Chris Brandt called the quesadilla “one of the most highly anticipated menu items in our brand’s history.”
The restaurant first tested the digital-only item with a pilot program in Cleveland and Indianapolis last summer to capitalize on the brand’s digital scale as it removed operational friction to utilize its Digital Kitchen.
