Rise and shine: Whataburger brings back Chorizo to its breakfast menu

Whataburger’s Chorizo Taquito is now back for a limited time.

What’s chorizo, you might ask? Chorizo is a type of ground sausage that derives its bold taste and deep red color from a fresh blend of spices. It’s an ingredient gaining in popularity and now available in all Whataburger restaurants to add a kick to our breakfast classic.

First launched in the fall of 2017 as a limited time offer, the Chorizo Taquito features a soft flour tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, Mexican-style chorizo and a slice of American cheese.

The Chorizo Taquito is available for late night and breakfast from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m. 

About Whataburger

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 for more information.
