After a regional launch last year, the Green Chile Double burger is going systemwide, at all of Whataburger's 700-plus locations for a limited time. This new burger will be available at 3 p.m. today, until October 3.

Just in time for fresh chile season, the Whataburger Green Chile Double has double meat and double cheese, with a kick. The burger is served with two American beef patties, a slice of Monterey Jack cheese, and a slice of American cheese, all topped with roasted green chiles and served on a toasted five-inch Whataburger bun.

Rolled out for the first time in Arizona, New Mexico, and select Texas cities in 2010, the Green Chile Double got rave reviews, including one from the Phoenix New Times, who said about the burger:

“The roasted green chiles brought a nice, mildly spicy flavor to the beef patties and the slices of American and Monterey Jack cheese made themselves known in a satisfying yet subtle way.”

The Green Chile Double is also available in a junior size and can be purchased in a Whatameal including a drink and French fries.

For a small charge, customers can substitute a side salad for fries in their Whatameal.
