Chipotle announced on Tuesday a new menu item at its U.S. restaurants for the first time in 2019, and customers can get it delivered for free on Sundays in September.

The new menu item is called "carne asada" and it is steak sliced and seasoned with lime, cilantro and spices. The new protein option will join menu mainstays chicken, steak, barbacoa and carnitas. Chorizo was added to Chipotle's menu in 2018.

Chipotle's carne asada has been officially approved for the Whole30 program, and is compliant with a Paleo diet, Chipotle said.

Carne asada was successfully tested in Fresno, California and Cincinnati before being rolled out nationwide.

"It performed incredibly well in the test markets and we're excited to be introducing this terrific, new steak nationwide for a limited time," said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer of Chipotle.

Chipotle said that customers can have carne asada delivered for free on Sundays this month.

Here is how Chipotle said customers can earn free carne asada:

  • Go to or our Chipotle app on your iOS or Android mobile device.
  • Build an order of $10 or more.
  • Select delivery and submit your order.
  • Sit back and wait for a Chipotle delivery partner to deliver a burrito.
