How to make it

  1. If you’re using leftover chilli, simply reheat it. To prepare from scratch, heat up the oil in a large casserole dish and add the fresh veg (onion, garlic, celery, carrot, peppers) and gently fry them for 8-10 mins or until nice and soft. Then add the cumin and cinnamon as well as the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and stir.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, Gran Luchito Cantina Beans and the finely chopped coriander stalks. Reduce the heat and let it simmer while you cook your meat.
  3. In a different pan brown the minced beef in 1 teaspoon of rapeseed oil. Once it gets a bit of colour add to the other ingredients in the casserole dish, and season with salt and pepper. Place a lid on it and simmer on a low heat for at least one hour.
  4. When the chilli con carne is cooked, remove from the heat.
  5. In a pan add a drizzle of oil and fry the eggs according to your preference. We love sunny side ups! Once ready, remove your eggs from the pan and place them on a plate covered with a bowl, to keep them warm.
  6. In the same pan add a bit more oil and the cherry tomatoes and quickly saute them with a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Once ready, remove them from the pan and set aside.
  7. Finally, in the same pan warm up your Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, get ready to serve your breakfast, and place the warm soft tacos in the plates (one per plate).
  8. Spoon a good amount of chilli on top of each tortilla, place an egg on top, and crumble a bit of feta. Follow this with the tomatoes, avocado slices, a couple of Gran Luchito Fire Roasted Serranos, finely chopped red onion and coriander.
