The Quesarito

Chipotle Quesarito
Have you ever found yourself drooling over two menu items, wishing you could order both of them at the same time? Customers at Chipotle who know about one of the secret menu items, the Quesarito, no longer have worry about how to address this issue. Chipotle’s secret menu has a combination of two of your favorite dishes- the quesadilla and the burrito- wrapped together into one gigantic masterpiece. The Quesarito consists of a regular Chipotle burrito, which is oversized on its own, wrapped in a cheesy quesadilla. The melted cheese latches onto the burrito, encompassing it in an all-inclusive, half-quesadilla, half-burrito hybrid. This cheesy goodness is sure to make your day a little more interesting than it would have been with a simple, regular burrito or quesadilla. It’s also a fairly popular secret for Chipotle connoisseurs, so ordering one will immediately identify you as a Chipotle-loving fiend who is in-the-know about all of the available options. Consider treating yourself to a well-deserved hodgepodge of Chipotle dishes by ordering the Quesarito.

Begin by building your burrito with all of your favorite ingredients, such as salsa, lettuce, chicken, and guacamole. The Quesarito does not skimp on your regularly stuffed burrito, so you don’t need to worry about missing out on any of your most-loved choices for your typical ensemble. In fact, it simply adds to the heaping portion size that you normally get with your Chipotle meal. For those who are looking to branch out, the Quesarito is an excellent option for customers who want to try a spicy salsa but don’t want to experience the full force of a flaming mouth; the cheesy goodness of the outer quesadilla will help to cool your mouth down a notch and keep your burrito warm in its protective wrap. For those who aren’t as interested in toning down a spicy order, the cheesy Quesarito is a great way to add some flavor to a normal, boring burrito. This work of art is wrapped in the signature Chipotle aluminum foil, making it easier to enjoy every bite without the mess (or to save half of it for later if you aren’t strong enough to handle the whole thing in one sitting—don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone).

To order the Quesarito, simply ask for it by name. Even though it is still considered a “secret” menu item, the Quesarito is fairly well-known, and it’s likely that the employees at your local Chipotle have been asked to make one before. If you run into any sort of confusion, you could always ask to have your burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. Every Chipotle employee should be exposed to this prized possession at some point in his or her career. Even if they look at you funny, you’ll be making a necessary sacrifice for your community of Chipotle lovers as they lust over your Quesarito masterpiece (and wish they would have thought to ask for one as well). Consider giving it a try; after all, adding extra cheese is an improvement to pretty much any type of dish, especially a Mexican-inspired meal.
