Chipotle’s Queso Blanco Has a New Recipe, and We Tried It


Courtesy of Chipotle

Chipotle first launched queso in 2017, and it kind of flopped. It was gritty, sharp and didn't work well with Chipotle's burritos. In response, Chipotle revamped the recipe for stores nationwide and began testing an all-new queso blanco at 52 restaurants across Detroit, Dallas and San Diego. 27, the dip will replace its orange predecessor at locations nationwide.

Chipotle’s queso blanco is made with aged white cheddar and aged Monterey Jack cheeses from small and mid-sized family farms in Wisconsin. It also gets serrano, chipotle and poblano peppers. So, how does it compare to the original? It’s a lot better. It’s not goopy or gritty. It’s creamy and flavorful, and tastes like real cheese.

“It’s an improvement on the last recipe for sure. I don’t remember that one very well, just that it was grainy and bad,” one editor said. “It has a homemade quality to it that I appreciated. The flavors were present without being overpowering, which I think makes it a good accompaniment to Chipotle’s burritos.”

“It’s 10 times better than the old queso,” another said. “That just tasted fake. This actually tastes like melted cheese.”

To try it for yourself, head to your local Chipotle on or after Feb. 27. Price varies by region, but you can expect to add it to any entree for $1.25 to $1.60 per 2-ounce pour. A 4-ounce side to dip your chips in will set you back $2.15 to $2.70. Chipotle’s queso blanco has our stamp of approval, but if you’re looking for the real deal, head to the best Mexican restaurant in your state.

If it's received well, it could hit menus nationwide.

Watching Chipotle test queso is like watching a YouTube video of a cat trying to ride a tricycle. You really want it to succeed because, well, wouldn&rsquot that be wonderful? But you know deep down that the chances of victory might not be that great. We&rsquore sorry to sound skeptical&mdashno one wants the same place we can get a solid burrito bowl to also have a fire cheese dip we can put on everything more than us&mdashbut we&rsquove been down this road before.

Back in 2017, Chipotle listened to the desperate pleas of its customers and began to test queso after finally figuring out a recipe that used all natural ingredients. It apparently performed well in a few markets, so the chain rolled out the hot cheese nationwide. Alas, the reviews were. not great. Chipotle even tried tweaking the recipe, but the new and &ldquoimproved&rdquo version was met with an outcry on social media. One Twitter user even posted a video captioned &ldquoThe best way to eat chipotle queso&rdquo that showed someone throwing the whole cup of it in the trash.

Here we are in 2019, and Chipotle is at it again. Are execs at the chain just gluttons for social media punishment or are they going to make our dreams come true? In an email from the fast casual Mexican food purveyors, it was announced they would test this new creation, a Queso Blanco, in 52 restaurants in Dallas, Detroit, and San Diego for a limited time. This period is called Chipotle&rsquos &ldquostage-gate process,&rdquo which &ldquoallows the company to test, learn, listen to customer feedback and iterate extensively before deciding on a national launch.&rdquo

The Queso Blanco is, again, made with real ingredients&mdashbravo, Chipotle. These ingredients include Monterey Jack and white cheddar cheese along with serrano, poblano and chipotle peppers. Honestly, it sounds delicious, especially with everything in it being natural. We have the highest of hopes for this little queso that could.

Chipotle continues in its email to describe the Queso Blanco as having a &ldquoperfectly smooth texture and bold cheese flavor with a mild spicy heat and a smoky finish&mdashperfect on the side with Chipotle&rsquos freshly fried chips or on top of any burrito bowl.&rdquo It has no artificial ingredients or preservatives.

&ldquoMaking delicious queso with real ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives is a tough project to take on,&rdquo said Chef Nevielle Panthaky, Vice President of Culinary at Chipotle. We get that, so we are pulling for the Queso Blanco to surpass Chipotle&rsquos last queso endeavor. In a promising turn of events, Chipotle says initial customer feedback has been positive and sales for the queso have increased. Early tweet reactions are. kind of on the same page.

Watching Chipotle test queso is like watching a YouTube video of a cat trying to ride a tricycle. You really want it to succeed because, well, wouldn&rsquot that be wonderful? But you know deep down that the chances of victory might not be that great. We&rsquore sorry to sound skeptical&mdashno one wants the same place we can get a solid burrito bowl to also have a fire cheese dip we can put on everything more than us&mdashbut we&rsquove been down this road before.

Back in 2017, Chipotle listened to the desperate pleas of its customers and began to test queso after finally figuring out a recipe that used all natural ingredients. It apparently performed well in a few markets, so the chain rolled out the hot cheese nationwide. Alas, the reviews were. not great. Chipotle even tried tweaking the recipe, but the new and &ldquoimproved&rdquo version was met with an outcry on social media. One Twitter user even posted a video captioned &ldquoThe best way to eat chipotle queso&rdquo that showed someone throwing the whole cup of it in the trash.

Here we are in 2019, and Chipotle is at it again. Are execs at the chain just gluttons for social media punishment or are they going to make our dreams come true? In an email from the fast casual Mexican food purveyors, it was announced they would test this new creation, a Queso Blanco, in 52 restaurants in Dallas, Detroit, and San Diego for a limited time. This period is called Chipotle&rsquos &ldquostage-gate process,&rdquo which &ldquoallows the company to test, learn, listen to customer feedback and iterate extensively before deciding on a national launch.&rdquo

The Queso Blanco is, again, made with real ingredients&mdashbravo, Chipotle. These ingredients include Monterey Jack and white cheddar cheese along with serrano, poblano and chipotle peppers. Honestly, it sounds delicious, especially with everything in it being natural. We have the highest of hopes for this little queso that could.

Chipotle continues in its email to describe the Queso Blanco as having a &ldquoperfectly smooth texture and bold cheese flavor with a mild spicy heat and a smoky finish&mdashperfect on the side with Chipotle&rsquos freshly fried chips or on top of any burrito bowl.&rdquo It has no artificial ingredients or preservatives.

&ldquoMaking delicious queso with real ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives is a tough project to take on,&rdquo said Chef Nevielle Panthaky, Vice President of Culinary at Chipotle. We get that, so we are pulling for the Queso Blanco to surpass Chipotle&rsquos last queso endeavor. In a promising turn of events, Chipotle says initial customer feedback has been positive and sales for the queso have increased. Early tweet reactions are. kind of on the same page.

Chipotle queso blanco ain&rsquot half bad

Oh wow. Chipotle now has queso blanco which skyrockets them to number one in the queso wars. It's so tasty AND it's all natural, unlike the petroleum products some of the other chains serve.

If you don't love me at my queso you don't deserve me at my queso blanco.

Listen, we want this Queso Blanco to work out&mdashfor Chipotle, sure, but mostly for our ever-present queso cravings. It might not ever beat Moe&rsquos queso, but close could be good enough.
