Nine Tasty Tex-Mex Ideas You Have To Try

In Ideas

Mexican and Tex Mex cuisine are often confused and the difference between them is far from easy to define. What is clear however is how tasty it is!

Below we give you nine of our favourite recipes to use Gran Luchito in typically Tex-Mex dishes.

1.Chilli Beef Nachos With Guacamole And Salsa

Food for sharing doesn’t get better than nachos. Besides adding a generous dollop of our Chipotle Chilli Paste into the mix, our secret ingredient in the Tex Mex recipe is finely sliced radish over the top for a deliciously fresh finish.

2. Smoked Chilli Chicken Fajitas

Tex mex is all about simple, delicious, spicy flavour and nothing encapsulates this wildly popular style than chicken fajitas. Do them well and you’ll be rewarded with succulent & juicy chicken with bags of amazing flavour. Here’s our version using our own Mexican Magic.

3. Rich & Spicy Enchiladas

This classic is one of our favourite Tex Mex recipes. It has its origins in northern Mexico. Perfect for a family dinner.

4.Smoky Chicken Burrito

Here’s our take on what has become one of the most popular Tex Mex recipes out there in recent times.
We’ve slow cooked chicken until it’s tender enough to pull apart and served it with fresh guacamole, pico de gallo salsa and lovely rice. Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste works really well here giving the wraps a subtle smoky spice that you’ll be wanting again and again. Chicken can be marinated and cooked beforehand.

5.Chilli Con Carne Corn Bread

If there’s one thing that Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste was made for its chilli con carne. The deep smoky flavour and perfect level of spice will give your chilli an unmistakeable lift. As you can see, we like ours with tortilla chips, but it works well with rice too. If you’ve got a winning chilli con carne recipe already, we implore you to throw in a spoonful of our paste to see what you’re missing! Check out these 9 wicked ways to eat chilli con carne.

6.Mexican Mac N Cheese

The ultimate comfort food just got more comfortable. Today we bring you the Gran Luchito take on an old favourite: macaroni cheese. Throwing chorizo and our Chipotle Chilli Paste into the mix, this is a simple and delicious way to jazz up a classic Tex Mex dish.

7.Mexican Pulled Pork Poppers

Poppers are a great little idea for a starter or party food. We thought this would be a great way to use up any leftovers you might have from our Smoky Mexican Pulled Pork recipe…how right we were! Give this delicious little idea a go and enjoy the good life. We replaced the usual jalapeños with sweet mini-peppers with plenty of heat coming from our Chipotle Chilli Paste.

8.Smoky Mexican Baked Beans

If you love baked beans on toast you simply need to give this delicious smoky homemade version a go.
We’ve gently cooked garlic, onion & our Chipotle Chilli Paste to give this classic dish a lovely subtle spice and oodles of flavour. For a delicious veggie version, simply leave out the bacon.

9.Fully Loaded Skins

Pimp your jacket potato with this tasty idea. Once baked, all you do is scoop out the flesh and mix it with all your favourite things like chorizo, Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste and plenty of cheese then pop it back in its jacket and bake until gooey and delicious.
This Tex Mex recipe is simple and unbelievably tasty!
