If you’re a fan of Chipotle and also a Roblox player then listen up! There is a surprise for all of us – they have released a brand new protein option for all to enjoy: Garlic Guajillo Steak.

Chipotle Rewards members as well as Roblox players got early access to, what they are calling, the brand new Responsibly Raised protein. It will officially be available to all Mexican food-lovers on Wednesday, September 14th.

What does this new Chipotle protein taste like? Here’s more about the Garlic Guajillo Steak and what to expect!

With this new protein being added to the menu comes a completely new and different profile to Chipotle’s menu as a whole. It features super tender cuts of steak well-seasoned with both garlic and guajillo peppers.

What exactly are guajillo peppers and where do they come from?

Guajillo peppers come from Mexico – specifically the Mexican state of Zacatecas is the main producers of guajillo chili peppers. It is in fact the second-most commonly used dried chili in the Mexican cuisine, after ancho chiles.

As far as where you’ll be able to order this steak, they are fully releasing it all throughout the United States and Canada this week!
