Fans begged Chipotle to add a queso option to their menu for years, and it’s finally here — but they are about to take dreams fulfilled and make it even better.

In a season when we’re all wearing our ugly holiday sweaters anyway, we are now being rewarded for our super-cheesiness.
Chipotle has announced that anyone who drops into a Chipotle location tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 12, who is wearing a cheesy sweater will score free queso with the order of any entrée. That means you can dip your tacos or burrito into yummy liquid cheese at will for no extra charge — for one day at least.
As for what defines a cheesy sweater, we’re pretty certain just about any holiday sweater would suffice. “What do we mean by cheesy, you ask? Well, just like your burrito order, it’s what you make of it. (Surprise us.)” the chain clarified in their announcement, which if we’re being honest, was not much of a clarification at all.
The queso promotion comes just months after the chain released a long-wanted queso recipe they went on to revamp when it received a lukewarm response from customers. The Chipotle queso, heralded for being all-natural, alienated some fans of traditional queso, who craved the familiar taste of processed cheese sauce.
But, it’s a new look, or at least a new taste. Maybe scoring some queso for free is a great way to get the new (and we hope improved) item into lots of cheese-hungry hands!
