Mexican Beef Recipes

Home | Blog | Cooking

Mexican Beef Recipes.. where do we begin? Chilli Con Carne initially springs to mind, as do Beef Tacos and Chipotle flavoured steak. Everything that is succulent, juicy, earthy, dark and wild! Here we give you a range of authentic Mexican beef dishes, as well as some classics with a Mexican twist! Enjoy!

We have made it easy for you to shop for the Luchito ingredients featured in this recipe collection, scroll to the bottom to shop from our Webshop. 

1. Smoky Mexican Steak

Smoky Mexican Steak

When a lot of people think of beef, they might think of steak. So here we give you our Smoky Mexican Steak recipe! Using our favourite Chipotle Paste takes a juicy Sirloin to the next level. It’s best done if you rub the paste into the steak and let it sit for a good hour before pan-frying. That way, a lot more of that smoky and sweet flavour rests into the meat. We always find this dish is best served with our Crispy Homemade Chips!


2. Easy Chilli Con Carne


Easy Chilli Con Carne, our Tex-Mex beef recipe. A classic! The great thing about this is that you can make a big batch, share with others, perhaps have some the next night, or just freeze the remains. Another similar beef recipe that can be used in this way is our Chipotle Bolognese. For the chilli, our Chipotle Paste is used again to bring all of that cracking flavour into the beef. For more inspiration, check out our Leftover Chilli Con Carne Recipes.


3. Chipotle Beef Stir Fry

Chipotle Beef Stir Fry

This is one of our Mexican Beef recipes that we wouldn’t necessarily call a classic, but have you tried our Chipotle Beef Stir Fry? It had to be on this list. It’s a great one for Spring/Summer as well. Just make sure you have some chopsticks! Our Chipotle Paste goes so well with soy sauce, sesame oil, fish sauce and lime juice as the beef’s marinade. All wok-fried with the noodles and vegetables, this might make a weekly occurrence in your household!


4. Easy Beef Tacos

These delicious and moreish Easy Beef Tacos are a great recipe to try if it is your first trip into Taco land. You will need some Wheat Soft Taco Wraps to fill the ingredients into, and some of our Jalapeño & Pineapple as a topping. Other toppings that go very well with this dish are our Chipotle Salsa, some Guacamole, and a dollop of sour cream! Fun for the whole family!


5. Taco Salad

Likewise if you are trying to eat a bit lighter but still have meals that feel satisfying and actually fill you up, then this is for you.


6. Beef Enchiladas

Our Beef Enchiladas recipe absolutely had to be on our list of favourite Mexican Beef Recipes. This one is a joy to make, as it can be made a few hours in advance, everything tidied up, and then simply put in the oven to bake. A good one to make on a weekend, for a lunch or dinner party, where no mess is wanted! The results are impressive, and everyone will be tucking into seconds! Best served with a crisp, green salad.


7. Chipotle Steak Fajitas

These beauties are something you and the family/housemates/friends popping over can have fun together doing for that big game night, or Friday night catch up. Chipotle Steak Fajitas make a nice change from the more popular Chicken Fajitas. Instant flavour comes in the form of our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix. Serve them with warmed Soft Wheat Soft Taco Wraps, guacamole & fresh lime. For further inspiration, check out these Fajita recipes.


8. Steak Sandwich

Steak Sandwich

The classic Steak Sandwich. It obviously had to have a mention! As far as Mexican Beef Recipes go, it is not the most complicated either. Our Chipotle Mayo is a must here, as that’s what gives the kick! A lovely barbecued flat-iron steak, toasted ciabatta, caramelised red onion, and some watercress are really the only other ingredients needed. Simple yet highly satisfying! A good one to impress you loved one with this Saturday lunchtime?


9. Chipotle Beef Nachos

Chipotle Beef Nachos

Aahh Nachos.. one of life’s many pleasures. These are even more exciting because they are Chipotle Beef Nachos! Our Chipotle Paste gives the beef superhero qualities with its incredible flavour. It’s no wonder this product is used in so many of our recipes. A definite must on the list of Mexican Beef Recipes. Tortilla Chips and Serrano Chillies are also needed for these. Go on, go ahead and try this next-level beef version!


10. Beef Burrito

The Beef Burrito is an authentic Mexican street food classic. For this recipe, we slow cook the beef. That could be done on a lazy Sunday afternoon, to be eaten either that night or over the following couple of days. More filling than Tacos, they are good for an easy dinner when you are hungry and want something quick! Check here for further Burrito inspiration.


11. Steak Burrito Bowl

12. Enchilada Lasagne With Beef Short Ribs

Enchilada Lasagne

Here is a very impressive dish that would be perfect for Saturday night’s dinner party! Our Enchilada Lasagne With Beef Short Ribs really hits the spot in terms of taste, presentation and overall Wow factor! It takes a bit of time to prepare, but leading up to the actual dinner there is very little to do in the last hour apart from get yourself ready!
