Mad Mex has brought back the Gobblerito, shown here at the Shadyside Mad Mex location, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018. The burrito is a Thanksgiving dinner wrapped in a burrito including a house-roasted turkey, black bean mashed potatoes, stuffing, and corn that’s drenched in gravy and served with a side of cranberry sauce.

Gobble up, yinz.

The Gobblerito dish is returning to Mad Mex restaurants on Sept. 23. They’ll be available through Thanksgiving Eve.

The popular combination of Thanksgiving dinner staples wrapped in a burrito includes house-roasted turkey, black bean mashed potatoes, stuffing, and corn.

“The whole thing is doused with house-made gravy and paired with jellied cranberry sauce,” Mad Mex says of its calorie-infused creation.

A Mad Mex employee previously told the Trib the origin story of the Gobblerito: Out drinking with friends in Philadelphia about 11 years ago, he stumbled into a Philadelphia diner and ordered turkey and mashed potatoes slathered in gravy. He realized it would make a great burrito.

The dish contains 1,483 calories, according to myfitnesspal.
