NEW YORK (WCMH) — Chipotle has primarily stuck to its standard offerings for years: Burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads.
Chipotle announced Thursday it will add six new menu items at its test kitchen in New York City, for eventual rollout nationwide.
The fast-casual giant is testing quesadillas, nachos, avocado tostadas, upgraded salads, milkshakes, and frozen palomas.
Below are Chipotle’s descriptions of each new item:
Quesadillas: Quesadillas are one of our most widely requested menu items, which Chipotle has never had on the menu until today. It is a crispy, grilled tortilla wrapped around a melty, cheesy filling and your choice of meat, fajitas or sofritas.
Avocado Tostada: We recognized through market research that millennials were snacking a lot midday, which spurred this concept which is a crispy, corn tortilla that has been fried flat then topped with our fresh, homemade guacamole and your choice of salsas, lettuces, and cheese. Essentially, the Chipotle version of avocado toast.
Nachos: This has been another long-requested Chipotle item. They are made up of house made corn tortilla chips that have been topped with queso and your choice of beans, salsas, and lettuce.
Spring Mix Salad with Avocado Citrus Vinaigrette: An updated salad blend that includes crispy Romaine, Tuscan Oak, Tuscan Red Leaf, and Lolla Rosa. The Avocado Citrus Vinaigrette is a creamy and bright dressing made from avocado, citrus, and cilantro.
Mexican Chocolate Shake: Based on traditional Mexican cocoa, this milkshake is rich and creamy, with a hint of cinnamon and spice.
Frozen Paloma: A tangy, boozy twist on a paloma meets margarita.
