Whataburger to introduce Chorizo Burger

Restaurant chain to bring back Chorizo Taquito

SAN ANTONIO – Chorizo lovers rejoice.

The spicy, bold taste of Mexican-style chorizo will soon be on the menu as a burger item at Whataburger.

The San Antonio-based restaurant announced Monday that it plans to introduce the Chorizo Burger.

The burger consists of two patties, chorizo, poblano pepper, red peppers, onions, two slices of Monterey Jack cheese and a new, creamy chili sauce.

"Mexican-style chorizo makes this burger unique with its deep red color, fresh blend of spices and bold, flavorful profile," Whataburger Vice President of Marketing and Innovation Rich Scheffler said. "The flavors on this burger blend nicely for a balanced but savory taste we think our customers will enjoy."

Whataburger also plans to bring back the Chorizo Taquito to the menu for its late-night and breakfast customers.

The taquito, which will be sold from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m., will feature a flour tortilla with scrambled eggs, chorizo and American cheese.
