Not only has Chipotle changed their recipe, they're also going to be rolling out nachos to test it with.
Chris Arnold, a spokesperson for Chipotle, confirmed that the company had "tweaked" its recipe and is hoping it will win back their customers.
"Same commitment to ingredients (still all real ingredients with nothing artificial), but it's got a creamier texture and a really nice flavor," Arnold said.
This Is Insider taste-tested the new sauce, and they seem to think it's an improvement.
"The queso we ordered on Wednesday was substantially less grainy," they wrote. "Even after it had been sitting out, it retained the proper texture of a dip instead of degrading into a sort of bizarre chowder. The flavors were slightly different as well — still a little smoky, but more of an even, overall heat."
The restaurant reported that after its queso was released, traffic (and interest) dramatically dropped. Only 15% of their orders currently involve the sauce, which is a stark difference from the 40% which involve guacamole.
