Chipotle is reintroducing a popular protein. Cali-Mex, a fast-casual restaurant business, briefly introduced carne asada to the United States and Canada. Burritos, tacos, bowls, and more options are available.
For stuffing, grilled or roasted flank, flap, or skirt steak seasoned with spices, lime juice, and salt is diced. Chipotle marinates beef in cumin, coriander, and oregano before grilling it with lime and cilantro.
Chipotle's 2019 carne asada addition to its menu of grilled chicken, braised barbacoa, shredded carnitas, and sliced steak was a huge success.
According to the firm, 10 million people tried carne asada, with half of them being first-time Chipotle customers. It returned in 2020, cementing its menu appeal.
Chipotle now offers a protein-specific quesadilla, which was not available four years ago. Chipotle offers three sides and Monterey Jack cheese with a fajita quesadilla.
There are grilled vegetables available. Quesadillas are dipped in cilantro-lime rice, black beans, and sour cream by the head chef.
Why is it possible that Chipotle's carne asada tastes better? Knowing that it contributes to the chain's ethical and environmental origins.
It employs antibiotic- and hormone-free vegetarian beef in its carne asada. Chipotle claims that just 5% of beef in the United States fulfills their criteria, making this challenging.
Chipotle will deliver carne asada for free through app or website from September 14 to October 1. Grilled fajitas, burritos, tacos, or bowls seem delicious.
