Wendy's Testing Green Chile Queso Burger and Baked Potato

Wendy's is testing burgers and baked potatoes featuring a combination of spicy poblano queso sauce and salsa verde over in Sacramento, CA, Providence, RI, and Chattanooga, TN.

The Green Chile Queso Burger includes the aforementioned sauce and salsa as well as cheddar cheese, three strips of applewood-smoked bacon, red onion, and a quarter-pound beef patty on a jalapeno cheddar bun.

If the jalapeno cheddar bun sounds familiar, it was first introduced to the Wendy's menu as part of the Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich.


For whatever reason, they went with a shorter name for the baked potato calling it the "Queso Baked Potato." It comes topped with the poblano queso, salsa verde, and shredded cheddar cheese.
