Here at Gran Luchito, we love Tacos. Probably the most famous Mexican meal loved by people around the world, especially on Taco Tuesday. But if you’re making a Mexican feast, then what to serve with your Tacos? Well, look no further. Here’s our round-up of what to serve with tacos, with a link to each recipe. Any leftovers can be put in the fridge for the next day.



1. Chips and Salsa

First up for what to serve with tacos is chips and dip! A classic Mexican snack, and a perfect little accompaniment to tacos on the table. Our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips are perfect dunked into some super smokey Chipotle Salsa, zingy and fresh Tomatillo Salsa, or fruity and hot Mango Salsa.

Goes Best With: Baja Fish Tacos


2. Mexican Rice With Chipotle

An authentic Mexican side dish that goes with every Mexican main. Our Mexican Rice With Chipotle is a simple recipe filled with carrots, peas and coriander, and uses our Chipotle Paste to add sublime heat and smoky flavour. In short, its a winner!

Goes Best With: Pulled Pork Tacos


3. Refried Beans

These are a no brainer when it comes to a Mexican side dish to tacos. Our Gran Luchito Refried Beans are great if you don’t have all day to make them, they are easy to prepare, nutritious and any leftovers can be used as a dip with tortillas the next day.

Goes Best With: Vegan Tacos

4. Mexican Corn

Mexican Elotes (aka Mexican street corn) is a classic way to enjoy corn on the cob! Such a treat and perfect to accompany those tacos. These ones are charred a little in a pan, then baked in our delicious sauce of sour cream, chipotle mayo, feta, lime zest, lime juice, a handful of fresh coriander.

Best Served With: Fish Tacos


5. Guacamole

You could spoon this on top of your tacos to upgrade them slightly, or have it on the side with some Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips for dunking. Above all, our Guacamole recipe is simply the best around due to the couple of spoonfuls of our Tomatillo Salsa stirred into it!

Goes Best With: Chicken Tinga Tacos


6. Mexican Salad

Our beautiful Mexican Salad is loaded with thin slices of carrots, spring onion, avocado, smoky chipotle honey, radishes and creamy feta cheese. This would be a delightful accompaniment to tacos for those who would prefer something fresh, green and light. Consequently, it had to go in our What To Serve With Tacos list. 

Goes Best With: Pork In Salsa Verde Tacos


7. Cheese Empanadas

These tasty Cheese Empanadas with sweet potato and brie can be prepared ahead of time and kept in the freezer, just place them on a tray that fits into your freezer and cover it with cling film, and make sure they are thaw completely before adding a little coating of egg wash on the outside and baking them in the oven until golden.

Best Served With: Breakfast Tacos With Carne Asada


8. Mexican Coleslaw

Is there anything a side of delicious Mexican coleslaw can’t improve? Add a generous amount of this crisp cabbage Mexican slaw recipe to your tacos and you’re on to a winner.  Much more flavourful than traditional coleslaw, it’s taken up a notch with a dressing made with our Chipotle Mayo and zingy lime.

Best Served With: Crunchy Beef Tacos


9. Mexican Black Beans

Mexican black beans are a great option to serve with tacos. Our lovely Cantina Beans (authentic black beans with their juices) are waiting for you to warm up and dollop inside them. You can garnish them with some finely chopped onion, tomatoes, chillies, coriander, some scoops of avocado and dollops of creme fraiche! 

Best Served With: Easy Chicken and Chorizo Tacos
