Back by popular demand, Qdoba Mexican Eats announced the return of fan favorite, Fire-Roasted Shrimp. Offering a zesty twist to Qdoba’s signature flavors, this protein is marinated in citrus and chile pepper flavors and is available as a create-your-own entrée option or can be enjoyed in a new dish:

Fire-Roasted Shrimp and Guac Burrito—Wrapped in a warm flour tortilla, zesty Fire-Roasted Shrimp is served with cilantro lime rice, black beans, freshly made guacamole and pico de gallo.

“When we first launched Fire-Roasted Shrimp last summer, our guests loved it,” says Jill Adams, vice president of marketing at Qdoba. “Now with its return to the menu, seafood lovers can recreate their favorite meal using an array of our fresh, house-made ingredients. Or, they can try our new Fire-Roasted Shrimp and Guac Burrito – The chile and lime flavors on the shrimp paired with the hand-smashed guacamole make it the ultimate flavor mashup.”

One way for guests to elevate their Fire-Roasted Shrimp experience is to pair the protein with Qdoba’s Cilantro Chimichurri—another menu addition being brought back for limited-time. A traditional Argentinian sauce that’s usually made with parsley, Qdoba is adding its own spin by using cilantro. This bright, tangy sauce is made at each restaurant daily using freshly chopped cilantro, red onions, jalapeños, lime juice, garlic and a savory herb blend. Since Qdoba’’s menu is customizable, guests can add Cilantro Chimichurri to any of their dishes, including burritos, burrito bowls, nachos, tacos or quesadillas.

“Our Cilantro Chimichurri is the perfect embodiment of freshness. It’s made by our restaurant teams that chop all the ingredients and blend them together by hand,” continued Adams. “It would have been easy for us to use a similar sauce out of can, but at Qdoba we’re all about taking extra steps to ensure we’re bringing the tastiest food forward every time.”

Qdoba has more than 700 restaurants across the United States and in Canada.
