McDonald’s, long the quick-service breakfast leader, has been trying something new since August: a breakfast burrito with dark-meat chicken.

The Chorizo Burrito is made with scrambled eggs, dark-meat chicken flavored with “Chorizo Seasoning,” Roma tomatoes, green chiles, onions and white Cheddar, all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. The burrito is priced at around $3 for two, though prices may vary by location.
