Christmas Dinner Ideas With A Mexican Twist

In Cooking

It’s often a struggle to find new Christmas dinner ideas that will please the whole family. To help you come up with something new and different we’ve put together a selection of Christmas dinner ideas with a Mexican twist! 

1. Chipotle Glazed Ham 

Glaze and amaze this Christmas by giving your ham a Mexican twist. Slowly cook the ham and then glaze in our smoky chipotle honey. Remember to baste the ham as it roasts so the honey has a chance to really get involved. Getting it nice and crispy on the outside is an absolute must.

2.Devils On Horseback

The Devils On Horseback (and pig in a blanket for that matter) has got to be up there with the most important part of Christmas dinner. Our Version is bacon soaked in Chipotle Chilli Honey. The sweet prunes cut brilliantly through the salty bacon and the almond in the middle provides a delicious little crunch.

3.Chipotle Cauliflower Cheese

This is a great Christmas classic with a Mexican twist, this recipe idea is the perfect addition to Christmas Dinner. It also works great as a vegetarian option simply add some half cooked pasta to the mix before baking.

4.Easy Shredded Brussel Sprouts

With sprouts, you either love em or hate em, spruce up your brussel sprouts this Christmas add some our delicious Chipotle paste to give them flavour which is out of this world a great addition to Christmas Dinner.

5.Chipotle Honey Sausages

Sweet and spicy in the perfect measures, these are a great part of Christmas Dinner loved by all ages.

6.Honey Roasted Parsnips

Encrusted in parmesan and thyme then drizzled with Gran Luchito Smoked Chipotle Honey. Sides don’t get much better than these bad boys. Wave goodbye to average parsnips. These crunchy honey roast parsnips are the perfect addition for any Christmas Dinner.

7.Mexican Roast Chicken

We mixed our chipotle paste with butter and spread it all over a lovely chicken, and under the skin then roasted it on a bed of lovely vegetables and finished it with chunks of fresh lime and coriander leaves. Spice up your Christmas dinner with this delicious recipe idea.

8.Sausage Stuffing Onions

Stuffing can be boring if you are looking for a great way to cook and present your sausage stuffing for Christmas dinner or roast dinner for that matter then look no further.

9.Spicy Honey Roasted Carrots

This Christmas jazz up your roasted carrots by adding a dollop of out smoked chipotle chilli honey. It gives them the perfect amount of smokiness, heat and sweetness. Stir through some fresh coriander right at the end to make the perfect little side.
