News Sonic Queso Burger

It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new Sonic product. Actually, I don’t think the chain releases a new product EVERY month, but it sure does seems like it. Anyhoo, Sonic has introduced the Queso Burger.

It features a quarter-pound, 100% pure beef patty topped with cheddar, a zesty cheese sauce with Hatch Green Chiles, grilled onions, and mayo on a toasted bakery bun. The burger has an advertised price of $3.99 and is available for a limited time.

If you’re not familiar with Hatch Green Chiles, join the club. If you want to be familiar with the pepper, you can read this, which was the second article that popped up when I typed into Google “what are hatch green chiles.”
