Party food nibbles are possibly the pinnacle of snacking. Perfect served at a drinks party or whilst watching sports, these easy to make Mexican party food ideas are guaranteed to get everyone talking.

1. Cheese Empanadas

These Quick Empanadas with sweet potato and brie are easy to make using pre-made shortcrust pastry sheets, full of flavour and spice and a total crowd-pleaser. Chipotle Honey is used to caramelise a red pepper and onion mixture, and this flavoursome concoction is then mixed with the roasted mashed sweet potato. A final spoonful of Chipotle Paste is added for an extra kick. Pastry circles are filled with this tasty mixture and a piece of brie is pushed into the filling and then sealed by pressing the edges. Once they are baked the cheese will melt inside and combined with the delicious sweet potato and chipotle is a match made in heaven.

2. Chilli Con Carne Beef Empanadas

What could be better than delicious, crumbly pastry full of tasty Chilli Con Carne made with our Chipotle Paste?

This recipe consists of a delicious soft-boiled egg encased in Gran Luchito infused sausage meat and tortilla chip breadcrumbs.
