Whataburger is bringing back its chili cheeseburger and chili cheese fries for a limited time, the Texas company announced this week.

The burger—also available in a junior size—will have two beef patties with corn chips, the company’s in-house chili, American cheese, onions and mustard on a toasted bun. The fries are topped with the brand’s chili and cheddar jack cheese.

“The Chili Cheese Burger and Chili Cheese Fries take comfort food to a whole new dimension,” Whataburger corporate chef James Sanchez said in a statement. “It’s the classic Whataburger experience reimagined with a new cast of unbeatable flavors. Our commitment to innovation, quality and taste is on full display here.”

The two items haven’t been on the menu since they were introduced late last year, and the company had been teasing the return of its chili-cheese products on social media. On social media, a “Have you seen this burger?” sign with tear-away paper strips was taped to a telephone pole. 

Whataburger also announced the return of other menu items, including the white chocolate raspberry shake and the jalapeño cheddar biscuit.

All the menu items—including the chili-cheese products—will be available for a limited time.
