ChorizOMG! Whataburger introduces new Chorizo Burger with Creamy Chili Sauce, Chorizo Taquito with Cheese
October 2, 2017 -- We often hear from our customers they’re interested in trying new flavors, so we answered the call in a big way with our newest limited-time burger, 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.
We’ve truly piled on the flavor with this burger, y’all. 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. We combined these two ingredients with our 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,” said 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), so we encourage customers to try it while you can. Prices vary by market. Stay tuned on social media for the latest updates.

Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Dobson gave his restaurant a name he hoped to hear customers say every time they took a bite of his made-to-order burgers: “What a burger!” Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, 100 percent beef burgers served on five-inch buns. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 820 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually. Visit www.whataburger.com for more information.
