Carne Asada is back at participating Chipotle Canada locations for a limited time.
The returning fan-favourite protein is marinated, then seasoned on the grill with a blend of signature spices like cumin, coriander, and oregano, and finished with fresh squeezed lime, hand-chopped cilantro.
Furthermore, and for the and for the first time ever, Carne Asada can be enjoyed as a protein option Chipotle’s customizable Quesadilla and Fajita Quesadilla with melted Monterey Jack cheese and three sides – exclusively via the Chipotle app and Chipotle.ca, and third party delivery platforms.
Chipotle’s Head Chef Nevielle Panthaky recommends pairing the Carne Asada Fajita Quesadilla with sides of cilantro lime white rice, black beans, and sour cream for dipping.
Carne Asada made its debut in September 2019 as Chipotle’s second limited time protein offering and quickly became a guest favorite. More than 10 million customers ordered Carne Asada in its first run and almost half of those customers were 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.
