Whataburger Has a New Chicken Fajita Taco That's Actually Not That Terrible For You. Sorta.
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.
