While many people love a restaurant menu hack and drool over TikTok food creations, Chipotle appreciates that those creative approaches to food can drive people to place an order. After seeing the overwhelming reaction to the quesadilla with fajita vegetables, it was only a matter of time before that order became a real menu item. Coming to the digital-only menu are both the new Fajita Quesadilla and five new fajita quesadilla combinations.

Over the years, Chipotle has leveraged its digital-only menu to showcase creative menu items. Whether it is a menu hack or a food trend, the platform showcases the versatility of the Chipotle ingredients. Even though people will always have their favorite order, a little twist can add excitement to that first bite.

After TikTok creators showed a menu hack that added fajita vegetables to quesadillas, many guests tried to place that order. But, the combination was not one that could easily be found by employees. That bump in the ordering road was an inconvenience for everyone involved.

Similar to other restaurants that bring back fan favorite food items based on consumers petitioning for their return, the fanfare associated around the quesadilla menu hack proved that Chipotle needed to make this order part of the digital menu.

The Fajita Quesadilla will be available starting on March 2 via digital ordering channels. The menu item features “Chipotle Quesadillas with Monterey Jack cheese, their protein of choice, and fresh fajita veggies.”

In addition, there are five new quesadilla combinations:

  • Steak Quesadilla with Fajita Veggies
  • Chicken Quesadilla with Fajita Veggies
  • Barbacoa Quesadilla with Fajita Veggies
  • Carnitas Quesadilla with Fajita Veggies
  • Sofritas Quesadilla with Fajita Veggies

Looking at these menu updates, it is another example of how Chipotle adapts to customer customizations. Given that Chipotle orders can be creative in numerous ways, each digital order gives the restaurant brand insight into what guests crave. When a company can better address the wants and needs of its guests, the brand will boost its guest satisfaction.

With this digital menu launch, it could spark a debate what could be the next big food trend coming to Chipotle. People might be scrolling social media for another hack or idea that will drive people to try something new.
