Here at Gran Luchito we definitely get very excited by the start of BBQ season! Our range of sauces and seasonings pair beautifully with grilled meat and veg. Our Easy BBQ Recipes provide plenty of inspiration for the main event, but what about the side dishes? There’s definitely scope to bring bags of flavour to the sides! We feature the best Mexican side dishes for a BBQ from reinvented staples such as potato salad and slaw to authentic Mexican sides.
1. Mexican Corn
First up on best Mexican side dishes is this seriously tasty Mexican corn salad recipe plucked straight from the streets of Mexico City. Known as Esquites in Mexico, we like to call it Mexican Street Corn. The secret ingredient is our Chipotle Mayo. If you prefer your corn on the cob, be sure to check out our recipe for Baked Mexican Elotes.
4. BBQ Avocado
A showstopper that’s quick and easy to make and perfect of the avocado obsessed! The prawns are marinated in Chipotle Paste and lime zest and finished with lime juice and coriander for plenty of fresh flavour.
This Mexican side dish really couldn’t be easier! All you have to do is simply tear the pouch and heat in the microwave. Our Refried Beans are made in Mexico from an authentic, traditional recipe. We slowly simmer Pinto Beans with smoky Chipotle chillies, Red Peppers and Mexican spices so all the work is done. We love topping them with grated cheese and sour cream.
With a dollop of our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste in the dressing in addition to loads of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, this Panzanella salad is certainly lovely and fresh.
Finally on our list of best Mexican side dishes is this Goat’s Cheese and Tomato salad bursting with freshness and hint of smoky sweetness from our Chipotle Honey.
We hope we’ve inspired you to inject some Mexican flavour into your side dishes. We would love to see how you get on in the kitchen, be sure to tag us #granluchito.
