Here’s our take on what has become one of the 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 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 unmistakeable 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! Check out these 9 wicked ways to eat chilli con carne.

If you love baked beans on toast you simply need to give this delicious smoky homemade version a go.
We’ve gently cooked garlic, onion & our Chipotle Paste to give this classic dish a lovely subtle spice and oodles of flavour. For a delicious veggie version, simply leave out the bacon.
