Chipotle responds to overwhelming fan-demand by welcoming back one if most popular protein options – Carne Asada – for the third time since it was first introduced back in September 2019.

Chipotle’s Carne Asada is marinated and then seasoned on the grill with a perfect blend of signature spices, such as oregano, coriander, and cumin, and finished with freshly squeezed lime and chopped cilantro. The returning fan-favorite protein is compliant with both the Keto and Paleo diets and has also been officially approved for the Whole30 program.
