That's Hot: Spicy Trio Comes to Moe's

Moe’s Southwest Grill today introduced a new Spicy Trio available for a limited time. 

Moe’s new Spicy Queso and Jalapeno Sour Cream are the featured ingredients of the Spicy Burrito, Quesadilla, and Rice Bowl. The contrasting sensation of the cool sour cream with the fiery jalapeno adds a bold twist to the new menu item. 

The Spicy Queso, which features the smoky chipotle flavor of Moe’s Hard Rock n Roll Sauce combined with its queso, can now be served as a side item with any meal in addition to the Spicy Trio.

“As consumer flavor preferences evolve, we’re seeing more and more people gravitate toward spicier menu items,” says Joel Bulger, vice president of marketing from Moe’s Southwest Grill. “Offering these hot flavors in the burrito, quesadilla and rice bowl formats allows guests to create a variety of tasty combinations.”

In addition to the Spicy Queso and Jalapeno Sour Cream, guests choose from all natural, cage- and hormone-free chicken, grass-fed sirloin steak, grain-fed, slow cooked pulled pork that’s hormone- and steroid-free or organic tofu to create the Spicy Trio.

Next guests can add any of the 20 ingredients they desire, including freshly made pico de gallo, crunchy cucumbers, crisp iceberg lettuce or shredded cheese, and chips and salsa.

The Spicy Trio is available at more than 420 participating Moe’s Southwest Grill locations nationwide until May 15, 2011.
