Today, Whataburger is launching the Chicken Fajita Taco, the newest permanent addition to the Texas burger icon's menu.

This isn't your average taco. It's a chicken fajita done the Whataburger way - with a whole sliced grilled chicken breast, layered with roasted poblano and red bell peppers, and finished off with grilled onions. It's light, but loaded at the same time.

"The new Chicken Fajita Taco uses fresh ingredients and has a distinct flavor profile complementary of the fire-roasted pepper blend," says Whataburger Group Director of Marketing Rich Scheffler.

"And at just 420 calories, the Chicken Fajita Taco offers customers a lower-calorie option - perfect for keeping those New Year's resolutions - but in a size that still satisfies."

With new burger options popping up across the U.S., Whataburger is known among its quick-service competitors for offering more choices and distinctive flavor combinations, and the Chicken Fajita Taco is no exception.

Available a la carte or as part of a meal, the taco can be ordered with Whataburger's apple slices instead of fries for additional calorie savings.
