Nine Simple and Quick BBQ Ideas
Here at Gran Luchito, we get very excited by the start of summer as it also means the start of the BBQ season. Our range of Mexican chipotle sauces have a beautiful deep smoky flavour that works really well with barbecued food.
From burgers to beer-can chicken and everything in-between, we’ve tried it all and below we’ve picked nine of our favourite quick bbq ideas in which you can use our Mexican magic to take your alfresco Summer cooking to a whole new level of flavour and enjoyment.
This is a really delicious and interesting quick bbq idea, Blend our Chipotle Chilli Mayo with oregano, cumin, garlic and fresh lime, it’s a really tasty marinade perfect for barbecues. We’d recommend trying to get a bit of char on the chicken by brushing on the remaining marinade as it cooks, and encouraging flames to lick the chicken.
Be careful not to burn it however by turning and moving around regularly.
One of our favourite BBQ recipes, these bacon wrapped asparagus fingers make a lovely side or starter. Our Chipotle Chilli Honey goes unbelievably well with bacon, so this was always going to be a winner.
Great currywurst is all about getting your hands on some top class sausages. Put them on the grill and remember to keep turning them so they don’t burn. A dollop of our Chipotle Chilli Ketchup completes the dish. If you don’t want fries you could try serving the currywurst with some of these delicious salad ideas.
You’ve simply got to try this recipe if you’ve got our Chipotle Chilli Honey. The sweetness of the honey combines perfectly with the salty soy and fish sauce. Whether you’re barbecuing or just cooking them up in a griddle pan, this is an easy crowd-pleaser that’ll work every time.
Elote (corn on the cob) is one of Mexico’s most popular bbq ideas. It’s the perfect side and everyone will love it.
Beautiful fresh flavours of lime and coriander make this Summer on a plate.
It works best if you can get a nice char on the corn before rolling it in the Chipotle Chilli Mayo and other ingredients.
Homemade burgers are the best and this easy burger recipe tops them all. As you grill these beautiful things the cheese inside will melt and ooze out, like an inside-out cheeseburger.
With our delicious Chipotle Chilli Paste in the mix as well, burgers don’t get much better than this.
Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste is an excellent little thing to have in the fridge with a whole load of different uses. Here we used it on a lovely chargrilled steak and served it with chips and salad.
Try it for your next barbecue, it couldn’t be easier to make.
It seems many countries have their own take on the kofta and so we thought a Mexican version would work a treat. We were right. We’ve mixed in a healthy spoonful of our Chipotle Chilli Paste along with crunchy pine nuts and fresh coriander. We’ve served it with naan bread to make it a little fusion, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t wrap it in tortillas and serve with guacamole to keep it straight Mexican!
Don’t let the simplicity of this little idea make you think it’s not special. Fresh guacamole goes excellently well with the spicy barbecued meatballs. Your guest will be calling you a BBQ legend!
All you need to do is lay your hands on some nicely ripe avocados!
