Chipotle revealed that restaurants around the Valley will officially begin serving queso on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
Customers had reportedly tried to get Chipotle to add queso to its menu for years, but the restaurant had trouble finding a recipe that did not include "industrial additives," said founder Steve Ells in a news release.
Chipotle's queso includes aged cheddar cheese, tomatillos, tomatoes and peppers. Because it does not have additives, the taste may vary between locations depending on the cheese's characteristics, he said.
The queso can be added to an entree, such as a burrito or bowl, or ordered as a side, much like Chipotle's guacamole. Pricing will depend on where you live, but should start at $1.25.
