Combining its passion for handcrafted meals, fresh ingredients, and unique renditions of Mexican cuisine, Qdoba Mexican Grill is proud to announce in Colorado today its new Chili Verde. Traditional Chili Verde, also known locally as green chili, is a soup or stew made from chopped roasted green chiles and served alone or over a variety of Mexican dishes. Qdoba’s new Chili Verde blends together jalapeños, green chiles, tomatillos, fire-roasted tomatoes, and slow-simmered black or pinto beans to create their spiciest dish to date.

Qdoba guests can order a vegetarian Chili Verde bowl or add Qdoba’s seasoned, hand-shredded pork. Each bowl can then be personalized with one of five signature salsas, tortilla strips, cheese, or lite sour cream.

“We traveled throughout Colorado and the Southwest researching different chile peppers and ingredients, as well as the history and culture behind green chili recipes,” says Ted Stoner, Qdoba’s director of strategic product development. “Then we hunkered down in our kitchen and began creating and experimenting with our Chili Verde, which we’re proud to let Coloradans be the first to sample.”

Qdoba’s Chili Verde bowl is available for a limited time at all 66 Colorado Qdoba restaurant locations starting at the suggested price, excluding tax, of $5.79 for a vegetarian bowl and $6.79 for a bowl with hand-shredded pork.
