What Kind Of Cheese Does Chipotle Serve?
By Erin Metz
Whether you opt for a Chipotle burrito, a salad bowl, or a gooey quesadilla, cheese is one of the most sought-after ingredients the food chain offers.
Chipotle's shredded white cheese is Monterey Jack — a semi-hard cheese made from cow's milk that melts well when exposed to heat. It is commonly used in quesadillas and queso dip.
The shredded cheese is included in the price of your meal up to a certain point. Asking for too much cheese may result in extra costs.
Chipotle fans seem to love Monterey Jack. When their queso first debuted, it was reportedly made with aged cheddar, and fans were unhappy until it was made with Monterey Jack.
