Better yet, Chipotle execs said the company could unleash queso on its menus nationwide as soon as this September, depending on how well it's received in the new test markets. CEO and Founder Steve Ells said he's confident about the expansion, especially considering how queso has long been the most-requested menu item among customers.
"We’ve been really pleased with the response to queso in the initial test at our NEXT Kitchen in New York, and want to see how it will do in a couple of markets," Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold said when reached via email. "Since beginning the test in New York, we have believed that the queso test was something that we could expand quickly, from an operational perspective, if we opted to do so."
All said, it's probably safe to get excited if your go-to chicken burrito bowl is seriously in need of a crapload of cheese sauce. Queso is coming.
