Carne asada is back on the menu at Chipotle Mexican Grill for a limited time.
In an unusual promotion, the Newport Beach-based chain made the beef available to its rewards members on Tuesday, according to a news release. Beginning Thursday, Sept. 24, people can order it through the Chipotle app or online. Counter orders and third-party deliveries will begin Sept. 28.
Chipotle’s carne asada is sliced in strips and cooked with cilantro, lime and spices. It is different from the steak and barbacoa on the permanent menu. The chain introduced it a year ago and it remained available for several months.
