Customers can customise Chipotle’s Quesadilla with Carne Asada, melted Monterey Jack cheese and optional fajita veggies with different sides.

Chipotle Mexican Grill chief brand officer Chris Brandt said: “Over the past few years, our fans’ passion for Carne Asada has rivalled any other Chipotle menu item.

“Now, we have answered the call, brought back this iconic protein and introduced an entirely new way to try Carne Asada with the Carne Asada Quesadilla.”

Carne Asada is a marinated and grilled beef offering, which comes with a mix of Chipotle’s signature spices, including cumin, coriander, oregano, freshly squeezed lime and chopped cilantro.

Chipotle said this protein offering is also approved for the Whole30 programme and can be used for Keto and Paleo diets.

To mark the relaunch of Carne Asada, Chipotle Mexican Grill is running a $0 delivery fee offer on all Carne Asada product orders.

From 14 September until 1 October, customers can place their orders through Chipotle’s mobile app or through its website.
