5.Smoky Chicken Burrito

Here’s our take on what has become one of our 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 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. If you’re new at this be sure to check out our guide to how to roll a burrito

6.Chilli Con Carne Corn Bread

If there’s one thing that Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste was made for it is chilli con carne. The deep smoky flavour and the perfect level of spice will give your chilli an unmistakable 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!
