Newest menu addition introduces three over-the-top flavors as permanent menu options
DENVER (December 8, 2014) – Qdoba® today introduced its newest permanent addition to the menu – Smothered Burritos, which feature three new smothered sauces that go inside and over-the-top with flavor, literally, to give guests a new way to experience burritos.
Dubbed “Smothers,” the three sauces each offer their own unique flavor to help guests amp up their burrito-eating experience and are layered inside and on-top-of one of three new Smothered Burritos:
- Tangy Verde: Mild-to-medium Smother is fresh and bright with a tangy kick
- Bold Red Chile: Medium Smother has a robust toasted chile flavor with a hint of sweetness
- Smoky Chipotle Cream: The hottest Smother is rich, creamy, spicy and smoky
“At Qdoba, we pride ourselves on creating big, bold flavors that elevate our guests’ experience,” said John Cooke, Vice President of Menu Strategy and Innovation. “Our Smothers deliver on this craving by bringing three new flavors and a new way for guests to dig in to our burritos. We’re excited to continue expanding our palate with Smothered Burritos.”
Delivering a mouthwatering experience in every bite, each Smothered Burrito features hot ingredients, like rice, beans, protein and a choice of Smother on the inside, with a second layer of Smother and shredded cheese that melts perfectly on the outside. Served warm, the Smothered Burrito is then topped off with sour cream, pico de gallo, and crisp lettuce.
The new Smothered Burritos are Qdoba’s first menu addition since the fast-casual Mexican brand recently announced an all-inclusive pricing structure in which guests pay a single price for any entrée—a price that is inclusive of as many mouthwatering flavors the guest would like to add, including guacamole, 3-Cheese Queso, Queso Diablo and now, the new Smothers.
