DENVER — It’s something many Chipotle fans have asked for for years, and now, Chipotle has finally answered.
The Denver-based chain has come out with its own queso recipe and is testing it in New York.
According to Business Insider and VICE, Chipotle previously refused to sell queso because it is traditionally made with several artificial ingredients, and Chipotle’s shtick is it uses natural ingredients only.
However, the chain apparently has figured out how to make all-natural queso, and it has debuted it at its NEXT Kitchen, a public-facing test kitchen in New York.
People are already posting queso photos and videos on Instagram.

One review of the queso is that it’s thicker and grainier than most others on the market — but that review also says the melty cheese really amps up the taste of your burrito.
If the queso generates enough positive reviews in New York, Chipotle will soon roll it out to their restaurants across the nation.
