Now for our Top 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!

1. Chorizo & Winter Veg Enchiladas

finished dish

For these Chorizo & Winter Veg Enchiladas the filling is made using seasonal winter vegetables, but you can prepare this recipe all year round and adapt your veggies to what is in season. Winter veggies are fried with chorizo, onion, garlic and seasoned with our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix – a match made in Mexican heaven! Once you wrap the enchiladas up in our Soft Wheat Soft Taco Wraps they can be covered in the Red Enchilada Sauce prepared with Chipotle Paste. Use the luscious bright red sauce and pour it over your enchiladas, the last touch is adding the grated cheese on top and placing your baking dish into the oven until the cheese creates a beautiful melted golden layer.

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!
