Every year around the Christmas season, Taco John’s swaps standard tortilla chips for housemade red and green chips as the base for its signature nachos, creating the more festive Nachos Navidad. The appetizer is a quick build of cheese, refried beans, taco meat, guac and assorted garnishes—easy to replicate in any operation. Taco John's franchisees donate a portion of the sales from every Nachos Navidad purchase to a worthy cause in their local community.
