Whataburger’s Chorizo Taquito comes with scrambled eggs, chorizo, and American cheese in a soft flour tortilla. This is not the first time the chain has offered the spicy sausage in a taquito. The first one was released back in 2011 at limited locations.

  1. I’ve heard these taste like sloppy joes. I love Whataburger, hate chorizo, but have never really had a sloppy joe in my life so this is tempting.

        1. I’ve been there before… it was actually Whataburger’s grilled onions and the girl at the register who convinced me to try it (on my next trip, though).

          Main reason is the flavor is too strong for me?

      1. Yeah my dislike for it is that strong… I guess because I keep tricking myself to like the next new item that has it and I end up so disgusted by it.

  2. Had the burger today (without the peppers and onions, cause ew) and it was fantastic. It was indeed a burger, and couldn’t possibly be further from a sloppy joe. The chili sauce added a nice punch.

  3. The peppers and onions are a big part of what makes it reminiscent of a sloppy joe, and when ordered with everything on it, it does indeed resemble one. It doesn’t have the same sweetness, since it features a chili sauce instead of the tomato-based sauce found on most sloppy joes, but it’s still similar.

    It’s very good— probably the best limited-time item I’ve eaten there.

  4. I had one of these earlier this weeks and it was absolutely my favorite specialty burger Whataburger has released, finally replacing the A1 Thick and Hearty burger in my heart. I didn’t get sloppy joe out of it, but maybe my chorizo taste buds are more finely tuned after almost 3 decades of living in Texas. I love that they offer everything in a junior size burger for those of us with smaller appetites, two full size patties plus chorizo is way too much food for me. For those of you fortunate enough to live in a Whataburger state, you won’t regret trying this one! For those of you that don’t, sop up your non-heat induced tears with your local burger of choice.
