Now for our Top 5 Enchilada Recipes…Why do we love Enchiladas so much here at Gran Luchito? Here are the reasons:
- Did we say melted cheese?!
- Enchiladas are super versatile, you can fill them with just about anything
- Furthermore, they can be made ahead so are perfect for entertaining a crowd with no stress
- Finally, it just feels so comforting and satisfying eating a plate of something hot, saucy and oozing. The combination of ingredients, and the way they are put together just hits the spot!
Chicken Enchiladas are an authentic Mexican classic. This version has been slow cooked to perfection using chicken thighs, which are more tender and succulent. This is a great dish to whip out for a special occasion that certainly has the Wow factor! The chicken can be cooked, and ingredients prepared in the baking dish during the day. Then popped in the oven in the evening. So although it looks like a real labour of love (which it is), these Slow Cooked Chicken Enchiladas are actually very mess free! All very simple come the evening!
This delicious Beef Enchiladas recipe is sure to win your family’s heart! A different take on the chicken version completely. Our Wheat Street Tacos are packed with juicy beef mince which has been marinaded in our Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix and topped with our Jalapeño & Pineapple. A truly impressive dish that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Here is our scrumptious Vegetarian Enchiladas recipe! Either serve alone or as a separate smaller dish to serve with a meaty version. We substitute meat with our Refried Beans and lots of veggies in the form of different coloured peppers, sweetcorn and red onions. The flavour packs a punch by combining passata with our Chipotle Salsa and our Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix.
This recipe is slightly different as it uses our delicious Enchilada Cooking Sauce! Chicken Enchiladas Verdes has a green sauce, instead of the usual homemade tomato version. So it’s time saving as well! The flavours are mild and fresh, packed full of tomatillos, jalapeños, onion and garlic. A lovely change to the more traditional style of Enchiladas.
Our friends at Olive Magazine came up with this delicious Chicken Enchilada recipe packed full of protein thanks to delicious smoky Chipotle chicken and black beans. It uses our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix to add loads of flavour instantly.
