DENVER — After three long years, Chipotle Mexican Grill is reintroducing Carne Asada.

Chipotle said Carne Asada is back on its menus in the U.S. and Canada for a limited time.

Marinated beef steak and then marinated on the grill with a blend of spices like cumin, coriander and oregano, along with lime and cilantro, carne asada has earned the respect of Chipotle fans.

This is the third time carne asada has returned to Chipotle’s menu. Carne Asada debuted in September 2019 and was reintroduced to the menu in 2020.

Chipotle said Carne Asada has become one of the brand’s most requested menu items on social media.

“Over the past few years, our fans’ passion for carne asada has rivaled that of any other item on Chipotle’s menu,” said Chris Brandt, CEO of the brand. “Now, we’ve answered the call, brought back this iconic protein, and introduced a new product.” A whole new way to experience carne asada with this carne asada quesadilla.

Chipotle estimates that more than 10 million customers ordered Carne Asada in its first run, and it believes nearly half of those customers were first-time guests at Chipotle.

Chipotle is offering a $0 delivery fee on all Carne Asada orders placed through the Chipotle app and website through Sunday, October 1.
