I got my first look at Chipotle’s menu from an article published last week in the New York Times, which revealed that Chipotle was one of the first fast food chains to add a Mexican takeout option.
Chipotle has since added a menu of about 200 Mexican-inspired dishes, and a menu in English as well.
The chain is also known for offering a limited number of vegetarian options.
Chipotle’s Mexican takeouts are made with meat and beans from animals raised in Mexico and then grilled on-site to make them leaner and chewier than their traditional counterparts.
The menu also includes a variety of other ingredients, including chili powder, cumin, cilantro, guajillo peppers, red bell pepper, cheddar cheese, sour cream, avocado, guacamole and salsa.
The chain is famous for offering up authentic Mexican cuisine in its restaurants, with the signature salsa, queso fresco, burrito and burrito bowl.
Chipotles menu has also included an assortment of tortillas, quiche, guava salsa, guanciale, corn tortillas and other tortillas.
Chipotles main ingredient, quetzal, is made from quesos fresco peppers that are grown in the region of Sinaloa, Mexico.
The beans are then cooked to make it more flavorful and more palatable than the traditional versions.
Chipots Mexican-themed menu is served with two salads.
Chipotle also has a “salt-and-pepper” salad and “salsa quesadilla” served with a side of guac.
According to the Times, the menu at Chipotls restaurants offers “a wide array of condiments, from the sweetest, most tangy, mildest and tangiest to the driest and most bitter, and from a range of sauces to a selection of toppings.”
In addition to a menu that includes a mix of traditional and new recipes, Chipotle is also offering a menu for new customers.
This menu includes “a handful of items, including an array of chorizo tacos, chorita tacos, tamales and chicken and beef tacos.”
