Family Meal Ideas That Will Have Your Kids Asking For More!


Home | Blog | Cooking

There’s nothing more enjoyable than cooking for your family and seeing their reaction when they absolutely love what you’ve made. Here at Gran Luchito, we believe that food should be shared which is why we love family meals.  Here are some family meal ideas that are guaranteed to have the whole family asking for more!

1. Hasselback Chilli Chicken Parmigiana

Family Meal IdeasWe love chicken parmigiana almost as much as we love Hasselback chicken. Inspired by a trip earlier this year to Melbourne, we’ve set about creating a recipe which combines these two epic recipes. Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste gives the tomato sauce a beautiful smoky spice that works wonders with this dish.

2. Smoky Mexican Steak

The wonderful thing about a good steak is that you don’t need to do much to it and it will always be amazing. Try using a little of our Chipotle Paste as a rub and searing for a simple and delicious meal.

3. Spicy Lamb Koftas

Family Meal Ideas

For this family meal idea, we’ve mixed in a healthy spoonful of our Chipotle Chilli Paste along with crunchy pine nuts and fresh coriander. We’ve served the koftas with naan bread for a little fusion, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t use tortillas and serve with guacamole to make this family meal Mexican! Family Meal Ideas

4. Mexican Jerk Chicken

Family Meal Ideas

To make this meal idea family friendly we’ve replaced the scotch bonnet chillies with our version of a chipotle paste. It makes the dish slightly milder, but equally delicious result.
A super easy weeknight dinner idea.

 5. Chipotle Butter King Prawns

Chipotle Chilli King Prawns

This family meal idea was inspired by Gran Luchito fan Alex. We love to hear about new ways to use our range and we’re always interested to try them out. This would work well as a starter or scaled up for the main course for a family meal. Best served with crusty bread and a green salad!

6. Mexican Pulled Pork

Family Meal Ideas

This pulled pork recipe is all about beautiful smoky flavour, and not an expensive smoker in sight. We rubbed it in a combination of dark brown sugar, salt and of course Chipotle Chilli Paste. This is a slow process, but if you put the effort in, you’ll reap some unbelievable benefits later. We made a tasty coleslaw to go with it made with lots of fresh ingredients, heavily influenced by the delicious version we tried recently at Pitt Cue.

Make sure you make extra so that you try all our Pulled Pork leftover recipes!

7. Smoky Chilli Dogs

Chilli dogs are a classic American dish that we knew would work really well given the Gran Luchito treatment. We used our Smoked Chipotle Paste to make a rich smoky chilli con carne and spooned it onto meaty Toulouse sausages in a bun topped with grated mature cheddar.

An easy dinner for a family of meat-lovers for sure!

8. Crispy Smoked Chilli Breaded Chicken

Our Smoked Chipotle Mayo is great for dipping just about anything in. But it’s also a great little ingredient to cook with, providing a lovely subtle smoky creamy chilli flavour. This quick family meal idea 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!

9. Meatball Mac n Cheese

Chances are you’re never likely to get bored of either mac n cheese or meatballs, but if that were to happen, here’s a tasty way to combine them for some amazing family meal ideas. We used a little of our Smoked Chipotle Paste in both the meatballs and the cheese sauce giving a beautiful smoky flavour throughout the dish.
