AUSTIN, Texas – Dec. 1, 2020 Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, Santa is coming to town – Torchy’s Naughty Santa Taco, that is. To bring a little comfort and joy to taco junkies after a long year, Torchy’s Tacos is highlighting the crowd pleaser as December’s Taco of the Month.

The Naughty Santa features grilled shrimp, chorizo, pickled onions, jack cheese, avocado, cilantro and poblano sauce on a flour tortilla – all for just $5.75.

“As 2020 comes to a close, we wanted to bring a sense of comfort to our fans by offering the beloved Naughty Santa Taco this month,” said Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos. “It pairs well with a warm bowl of Green Chile Queso and a frozen swirled margarita for a little festive cheer. As we settle down to enjoy the holidays, we wish all our guests and team members a safe and happy holiday season, filled with family, great food and Taco Love.”

The Naughty Santa is available Dec. 1 at participating Torchy’s Tacos locations. Portions of the proceeds from all Taco of the Month sales go to Torchy’s charitable partners.
