Chipotle fans will soon have another reason to visit the fast food chain, as it has begun testing a Tex-Mex queso dip.

For a long time, Chipotle rejected requests for a queso dip because it had not yet found a way to produce a shiny, velvety queso dip without the use of artificial stabilizers. Chipotle is known for its healthy food options and commitment to using only natural and fresh ingredients. At its New York City test kitchen, the company is now testing a recipe for a Tex-Mex queso dip. According to Business Insider, the queso is "viscous and texturally closer to a chowder than nacho cheese... The savory, rich flavors are all present, with a slow, pleasant, smoky burn."

Apparently queso has been the most-requested item on Chipotle's menu and the company decided it was high time to get on the queso train. "All of our competitors sell queso, and we know some customers don’t come to Chipotle because we don’t offer it." While it may not be the stringy cheese dip Tex-Mex fans know and love, Chipotle's queso dip certainly has fans excited.
