Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. isn’t the fast-food joint most diners visit when they’re craving a milkshake. Its new CEO is trying to change that.

The restaurant chain known for its burritos is preparing for what could be its biggest menu expansion in company history. Chipotle announced Thursday that it will add five new food items -- Mexican chocolate milkshakes, avocado tostadas, quesadillas, nachos and a salad with avocado-citrus dressing -- at its test kitchen in New York City.
