Chipotle customers are obsessed with a secret, ‘life-changing’ new menu hack: ‘How did I not know about this?’

Chipotle’s “dragon sauce” is the latest secret menu item taking over TikTok. 

The order hack, which some users have called “life-changing,” has joined a long-standing tradition on the app. In the past, users have revealed their favorite custom Starbucks drinks, their strangest menu discoveries at McDonald’s and their little-known Chick-fil-A drink orders

Now, thanks to a new Chipotle menu item, “dragon sauce” has earned TikTok’s attention. The “secret” item can be made by ordering the chain’s quesadillas, which are only available for takeout. The quesadillas come with three sauce options — including a choice of sour cream, guacamole and several salsas.

To make the dragon sauce recipe, TikTokers are simply ordering the quesadilla with sour cream and hot salsa. Then, they’re mixing the two together and digging in with their quesadillas. 

One of the countless TikTokers to order the sauce was user @domeniciniguez. In a now-viral clip, he showed how to make the simple-but-beloved secret item.

“How did I not know about this?” he captioned the clip.

The menu hack is unbelievably simple, but it’s clearly struck a chord with Chipotle fans. Videos using the #DragonSauce hashtag have already drawn more than 13.5 million views, and TikTokers have given the concept plenty of praise. 

“Oh my god. I didn’t know I needed this until now,” one user commented on @domeniciniguez’s video. 

“I wanna try this,” another added.

“I know what to order tomorrow,” another wrote

Dragon sauce has even gotten the stamp of approval from Chipotle itself. The chain — which is known for its TikTok-savviness — posted a video co-signing the idea. 

“This menu hack is ELITE,” the chain wrote in its caption

Of course, not everyone agrees. Some TikTokers have commented that Chipotle’s dragon sauce isn’t really so special — considering it’s just a mix of two simple, already-existent sauces.

“How are y’all just figuring this out? This is so simple,” one user commented
