This is strange. An oddity, or meaty Halley's comet, if you will:

Whataburger's introducing a new chicken fajita taco that has (as you can see above) a whole chicken breast inside its flour tortilla, with onions, poblano and red bell peppers. Sounds kinda great? Well, here's the surprising part: it's sorta kinda not that terrible for you.

Served as is, the taco weighs in at 420 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 29 grams of protein. Using their fancy nutritional chart, I knocked off the oils and brought it down to 360 calories. Not too shabby.

Unfortunately, just one damn taco is 1,262 mg of sodium. But hey, it could be much, much worse.

Little secret - have a slice of Monteray Jack cheese added (like on the grilled chicken melt) and get a portion of the honey pepper vinaigrette salad dressing (a sweet and sour dressing with a pepper kick) and dip it.... it is a bomb.  Whataburger employee certified.

They have offered this for years, just not at the Corp stores. It's the grilled chicken patty cut up.

Allsups....GREATNESS!  Nothin' better than goin' out west, and gettin' some fried burrito's AND a 17 dollar X-mas tree.  Then pullin' over 5 miles down the way to take roadside dump.

Right. The idea was more that this version is new, and actually isn't a nutritional bomb. Well, apart from the sodium
