1. Black Beans & Rice

What makes our Black Beans & Rice recipe so easy and delicious is the addition of our Cantina Beans which have already been slowly simmered and we add some smoky delicious flavour with our Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix. A tried and tested combination perfect for making it Mexican!

6. Quick Queso Fundido With Cauliflower

In this homemade queso fundido recipe, we used roasted cauliflower flavoured with Gran Luchito Chipotle Honey glaze and a bit of Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix. It’s another great idea of what to put in fajitas either as a side or as a starter.

7. Frijoles

A side portion of Frijoles wouldn’t go amiss. In fact, Frijoles go amazingly well with almost all Mexican meals so we had to add them to our what to serve with fajitas blog! They would certainly work stuffed inside the fajitas as well.

8. Mexican Salad

Our beautiful and fresh Mexican Salad is a perfect fajita side dish. Something light and green with a Chipotle Paste dressing. Fill up that plate amigos!

9. Chips and Salsa

Chips and Salsa are the easiest side dish and go with every Fajita recipe. Of course we might be a bit biased but our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips are made with whole corn and large quarter cuts of tortillas so they are the perfect size for dipping into a jar of Gran Luchito authentic salsa.

10. Nachos

Nacho average chicken fajitas side dish! This classic Tex-Mex dish has so many different possibilities.  Here we went for Chilli beef, guacamole, sour cream and Chipotle Salsa before finishing them off with grated cheese, coriander, spring onions and lime. Yum!

11. Mexican Black Beans

Mexican black beans go well with fajitas. 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!
