Queso is cheesy -- and so is Chipotle Mexican Grill's latest freebie offer.
The chain is giving away free queso with your entree Tuesday if you wear a tacky sweater to one of its participating locations. The offer is good for burritos, bowls, salads and tacos.

With its carol-alluding "Hark! The free queso sings" giveaway, the company is heralding the ugly holiday sweater trend.
The chain may be hoping these acrylic, cotton and wool monstrosities draw attention away from criticism of its spicy cheese sauce, which added to its national menu in September.
Chipotle had waited to unveil its queso until it had a perfected a healthy version of the much-demanded sauce, but its final product was derided by some customers who took to social media to rip on what they thought was a grainy taste. Earlier this month, the chain introduced a creamier queso.
