Chipotle Mexican Grill finally adds queso to its menu

Today is the day that queso lovers have been waiting for. Chipotle Mexian Grill has added queso to its menu.

The company tested their queso in 350 restaurants in California before deciding to take in national.

Despite numerous requests, the restaurant chain didn't offer queso before because it had trouble finding a recipe that did not include "industrial additives." Apparently, that problem has been solved.

The complex and slightly spicy flavor of Chipotle’s queso comes from the combination of simple ingredients customers can recognize such as aged cheddar cheese, tomatillos, tomatoes and several varieties of peppers. Chipotle is the only national restaurant brand that uses no industrial additives, including so-called natural flavors, color or preservatives in its food (except lemon and lime juice which can be used as preservatives, though Chipotle uses them only for taste).

Customers can order queso on their entrée, or on the side in two sizes with chips. Prices vary slightly by city, but range from $1.25 to add it to an entrée to $5.25 for a large side order. Additional details are available at .
