Taco John’s is making spirits bright with the highly anticipated return of Nachos Navidad.

Now through Dec. 31, the popular quick-service restaurant is celebrating the most wonderful time of the year by supporting local charities through its 25th Nachos Navidad promotion.

Back by popular demand, Nachos Navidad features red and green tortilla chips with Taco John’s traditional Super Nachos – a mountain of house-made cooked tortilla chips covered in nacho cheese, 100% American beef, refried beans, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, black olives, guacamole and rich sour cream.

“The holidays are an incredibly special time, and this year we’re getting ready for an even bigger. bolder. better. holiday season because we’re celebrating 25 years of Nachos Navidad,” says Taco John’s CEO Jim Creel. “This promotion is so much more than just colorful nachos. Two years after we launched Nachos Navidad, a franchisee proposed that we support local causes with the proceeds. Since then, Nachos Navidad has really been about bringing communities together. We are very excited for this fan favorite to return and for Taco John’s to give back to numerous organizations across the country.”

For the past 23 years, many Taco John’s franchisees have donated a portion of the proceeds from every Nachos Navidad purchase to a worthy cause in their local community. Franchisees have the freedom of choosing the charity they’d like to support, some of which include Friday Food Bag Foundation, United Way of Western Nebraska and Yellowstone County Boys and Girls Club, among many others. The hyper-local donation approach has collectively raised millions of dollars for hundreds of organizations where Taco John’s restaurants are located.

“My daughter was born with Cystic Fibrosis, so I wanted to fundraise for the Cystic Fibrosis Association of ND by donating a portion of the proceeds from Nachos Navidad,” says Taco John’s franchisee Mike Sartwell. “What began as a fundraising event organized by myself and my fellow franchisees across ND and western MN, to help people suffering with CF, ended up being an entire nationwide charitable initiative. I am very proud to see how far Taco John’s has taken this giving component over the past 23 years.”

Additionally, in the spirit of giving, Taco John’s fans can stuff their stockings with gift cards that everyone will enjoy. For every $25 gift card purchased, guests will receive a $5 bonus card.
