)-- Tijuana Flats “Fires Up” This Holiday Season
Tijuana Flats and its charity, the Just in Queso Foundation, are kick-starting this holiday season by giving back to a deserving cause, for the 18th year in a row.
All proceeds from the sale of the “Smack My Ass & Call Me Santa!” holiday hot sauce will be donated to Kids Beating Cancer. The hot sauce is available for purchase at all of the restaurant chain’s locations and online at TijuanaFlats.com.
New this year, also with proceeds benefiting Kids Beating Cancer, is a special Gingerbread Cookie Dough Flauta dessert — Gingerbread cookie dough loaded into a flour tortilla, lightly fried & topped with powdered sugar will be available at all locations beginning Monday, December 2.
In 2012, the brand raised $92,000, all of which benefited the charity. Kids Beating Cancer’s mission is to increase access to treatment for children with cancer and other life threatening diseases by funding the cost to identify compatible donors, funding uninsured medical expenses and providing support for families as they face the challenging journey towards a cure.
