Chipotle Is Giving Away Free Orders of Chips & Guac Today

Chipotle Is Giving Away Free Orders of Chips & Guac Today The one-year anniversary of a relationship is certainly worth celebrating, but it's not something you should go all-out for. Just don't tell that to Chipotle and DoorDash, who are marking the first 12 months of their union with a big ol' guac & chips giveaway on Tuesday. In honor of the anniversary of DoorDash's partnership with Chipotle, the delivery service and burrito-slinging chain are offering up a free order of chips and guac with all delivery orders of $10 or more placed through DoorDash on April 30.

For the longest time, it’s felt like Taco Bell and Chipotle operated on separate planes of existence: Chipotle is where you line up behind other people in business casual attire to order a burrito bowl on your lunch break. Taco Bell is where you order a taco wrapped inside a quesadilla at midnight after enjoying some legally purchased recreational marijuana. But with some new menu items currently in the testing stage, it looks like Taco Bell is taking aim at Chipotle.

The first such “From Our Cantina” limited-edition offering is an avocado ranch bowl, showcasing some lighter fare. Looking similar to a tray of loaded nachos you might overpay for at a baseball game, this bowl is built on fresher and lighter ingredients. Grilled chicken is the star of the show, with black beans, purple cabbage, lettuce, and pico de gallo rounding out its rainbow of color. It’s served on a bed of seasoned rice and drizzled in (fittingly enough) a tangy avocado ranch sauce. And for once, it looks like chips and guac aren’t extra.

Taco Bell is selling nachos, and you don’t have to pay extra for guac

Taco Bell is selling nachos, and you don’t have to pay extra for guac Taco Bell is back at it with four new menu items, including a sizable Grande Nachos Box featuring a layer of chips topped with a double serving of seasoned beef or shredded chicken, refried beans, nacho cheese sauce, reduced-fat sour cream, a three-cheese blend, pico de gallo and guacamole (at no extra charge). Customers nationwide can get all this and a medium drink for $5. The other three items won’t be available at all Taco Bell locations across the country, but instead will appear in test markets. The $1 Double Stacked Taco was previously on national menus, but now it’s back with two new sauce options in Birmingham, Alabama, only.

There’s more from the cantina than just that. The new Chipotle Grilled Burrito wraps up most of those ingredients, swapping out grilled chicken for steak and opting for a chipotle sauce instead of the avocado ranch. I get that “chipotle” is a pepper and not specifically a tex-mex chain, but it’s hard not to feel like Taco Bell has put them in the crosshairs with this one.

Regardless of how you feel about Chipotle or Taco Bell, it’s going to be hard to get your hands on these for the time being. They’ll only be available in the Cleveland, Ohio area (not exactly a part of the country that conjures images of a Mexican cantina) until some time in October. Hopefully things work out so they’re more easily available nationwide soon thereafter—and that Chipotle decides to retaliate by selling a fancy margarita.
