Whataburger is launching the Chorizo Burger with Creamy Chili Sauce. Chorizo, a type of ground sausage that derives its bold taste profile and deep red color from a fresh blend of spices, is already a staple in many places and gaining in popularity.

The sizzling chorizo gives the burger a bold taste, while a blend of fire-roasted poblano peppers, red peppers and onions give it a fresh bite. Whataburger combined these two ingredients with  new Creamy Chili Sauce, two slices of Monterey Jack cheese and two fresh, all-beef patties for a unique burger with the perfect balance of spice.

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

The Chorizo Burger is only available for a limited time (no exact dates to share). Prices vary by market.

  • Two beef patties: never-frozen, juicy 100 percent pure beef, double patties
