Here at Gran Luchito one of our most talked-about products is without a doubt our Chipotle Mayo. Our loyal fans just can’t get enough of it! And for good reason. Used cold once opened, no cooking required, just simply added to prepared dishes like conventional mayo, except this one has a kick! With a medium, smoky heat, our chipotle chilli mayo is very versatile and the perfect condiment to add some flavour to whatever you’re eating. Whether you like it for dunking or dolloping, every fridge should have a jar of this inside. In this blog, we will share our best Chipotle Mayo Recipes to enjoy with this little pot of pure gold!
The perfect chips. Once you try making your own homemade chips, you won’t ever want to go back to the tasteless ones that come in a bag. Not only are they super tasty, just like roast potatoes, they are also easier to make than ones that are fried and also healthier! And of course.. they go especially well dunked in our Chipotle Mayo and Chipotle Ketchup! Naughty! If they are to accompany a specific main course, they go particularly well with our Smoky Mexican Steak, Mexican Burger, or Mexican Pulled Pork Sandwich.
2. Fish Tacos
Fish tacos are one of our favourite taco recipes. What’s not to love about beautiful fresh fish marinated in Mexican spices and served over delicious warm tortillas, a fresh salsa and a touch of lime? Just perfect! For this stunning recipe, the haddock fillets are coated with a good amount of Garlic and Guajillo Fajita & Taco Mix, olive oil, lemon (zest and juice), salt and pepper. The garnish and best accompaniment for this fish taco is a fresh and spicy salad. This is made out of crunchy veg and seasoned with our amazingly delicious Chipotle Mayo.
Would you just take a look at that! A Mexican Pulled Pork Sandwich.. yum. What a great lunch idea, and good way to use up the leftover pulled pork. Our Chipotle Mayo really takes this sandwich to the next level, and it’s finished off with a quick red cabbage pickle, some fresh green salad leaves and a squeeze of lime. Perfection!
These Pulled Pork Tacos are a really simple way to use up leftover pulled pork using our deliciously smoky Chipotle Paste. However, if you have decided to make the pulled pork from scratch, we recommend making a big batch the day before, perhaps freeze some, and then enjoy it throughout the week in tacos! This delicious taco recipe also comes with a quick red cabbage pickle, and of course benefits highly with dollops of our Chipotle Mayo!
There’s nothing more satisfying than putting all of those leftovers from the Christmas feast (or any turkey meal) together into one tasty meal. Somehow they manage to taste even better the day after! Just imagine adding all of those tempting bits into a Burrito Wrap, accompanied by our Refried Beans, Chipotle Mayo and Fire Roasted Serranos.
Our next Chipotle Mayo recipe is Poached Egg With Avocado Toast! Despite being a genuinely healthy and delicious Mexican breakfast or brunch idea, this dish also means you can incorporate our Chipotle Mayo into your morning routine. Genius! Having said that, you can make this recipe at any time of day, and it’s also super easy to make.
If you’re a meat lover, who doesn’t love a steak sandwich? Make this for your loved one (and yourself..!) for lunch one day, and continue licking your lips for the rest of the day. Some lovely flat-iron steaks popped between slices of toasted ciabatta with caramelised red onion, watercress and our Chipotle Mayo. Enough said!
Out of all of the taco recipes, we have to offer, our Grilled Chicken Tacos made the cut for this blog. Our Chipotle Mayo dolloped on top of the grilled chicken, combined with a dollop of our Red Pepper Salsa and some guacamole simply worked wonders in our test kitchen! An easy taco recipe, for every day, that incorporates our chipotle mayo beautifully.
This Chipotle Mayo recipe is a must-try and a delight! It takes a bit of time and effort to prepare, but it’s worth it. Crispy crackling surrounds a tender, slow-cooked meaty middle. We serve this Pork Belly Porchetta with creamy mashed potato, spiced up with Chipotle Mayo and a gloriously garlicky salsa verde which cuts through the rich, fatty meat perfectly.
Our Mexican Shepherd’s Pie is a bit of a cult recipe here at Gran Luchito. It’s so popular due to it being so easy to make and such real comfort food with a gentle warming smoked Mexican chilli kick. It was also one of the first ever recipes we made using our Chipotle Paste. The simplicity of that added to the mince, and then our Chipotle Mayo added to the mash really transforms the dish and takes the pie to another level.
11. Mexican Corn
This recipe is more of a side dish than main course, but had to have a mention in our Chipotle Mayo blog! It’s a seriously tasty Mexican street corn salad recipe that has been plucked straight from the streets of Mexico City. Chipotle Mayo of course is used, along with butter, garlic, parmesan, coriander and lime to create a delicious and memorable side dish. Any leftovers can go into your tacos the next day!
This quick Mexican breaded chicken recipe uses the mayo to help coat a chicken breast in breadcrumbs for a quick and delicious mid-week meal. You could do the same thing with strips of chicken! So it’s not just a hero product to use for dipping, but also to cook with! A great recipe to serve with our Crispy Homemade Chips.
13. Spicy Gnocchi
Gnocchi is a classic Italian recipe made from mashed potatoes. If you love pasta and you’ve never tried it, you’ll absolutely love this spicy gnocchi recipe. Having discovered how good our Chipotle Mayo is in mashed potato back when we made our Mexican Shepherd’s Pie recipe, we thought we’d try popping some in gnocchi. A very subtle smoky chipotle chilli kick make this a very special dish.
We decided to set ourselves the challenge of developing the ultimate Mexican hamburger recipe. We’ve used our Chipotle Paste in the beef mince and then spread the bun with our Chipotle Mayo and Chipotle Ketchup along with a few other key ingredients. These include cheese, bacon, and a good salad combo (which must contain gherkins). Serve it with our Crispy Homemade Chips!
Our Coronation Chicken recipe is perfect with rice and salad, as a topping for a jacket potato or between 2 slices of thick-cut bread. It’s also a great way to use up leftover roast chicken from your Sunday Mexican Roast Chicken (as if there’s ever any left!). The Chipotle Mayo of course does all the talking, and brings this retro recipe bang up to date!
