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.
