Taco time! Here at Gran Luchito we’re fanatical about tacos. Travelling in Mexico and experiencing first-hand the unique tastes and variety of tacos available really ignited our passion. Check out our Top Taco Recipes!

1. Taco Salad

Taco Salad

First up on our Top Taco Recipes list is our beautiful Taco Salad! Look no further if you’re looking for a healthy reset without depriving yourself of everything that’s tasty in life. 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.


2. Pork in Salsa Verde Tacos

These Pork in Salsa Verde Tacos are inspired by the Mexican stews known as “Guisados” or “Guisos”. There isn’t just one recipe for guisados! Our guisado is made using pork shoulder cooked with fried onions, potatoes and seasoned with our  Garlic & Guajillo Fajita and Taco Mix. They are then covered and simmered in our delicious Enchilada Cooking Sauce. Finally they are finished with freshly chopped coriander, and served with Luchito Soft Wheat Soft Taco Wraps.


3. Roasted Cauliflower Tacos


Cauliflower has become a hero vegetable in the last few years. It’s used to make pizza crust, fishless ceviche and even a carbless version of rice! We think cauliflower is a pretty tasty vegetable and it makes a delicious filling in our Roasted Cauliflower Tacos recipe. For this recipe we rub the cauliflower with a full-flavoured paste made from white tahini, our bestselling Chipotle PasteGarlic and Guajillo Fajita & Taco Mix, garlic cloves and lemon juice.


4. Carne Asada and Egg Tacos


This beautiful Carne Asada and Egg Tacos recipe is more of a brunch idea. When it comes to our favourite brunch recipes one of the first things that comes to mind is steak and eggs!
