Non Spicy Mexican Food

Mexican cuisine has a reputation for being hot and spicy, largely due to the frequent use of chillies in traditional recipes. However, many Mexican dishes have more subtle flavours and even the spicy ones can be customised to bring the heat levels down.

In our Non Spicy Mexican food blog, we will share some advice on how to make milder Mexican dishes, a great option for feeding a family and satisfying those that don’t take well to hot and spicy food.

FAQs

Do you have any questions regarding our Mexican Family Favourites recipe collection? We’ve put together some answers to our most frequently asked questions below. If you want to learn even more be sure to check out the Gran Luchito YouTube Channel.

What is a typical Mexican family dinner?

Dinner is actually a lighter meal often made up of a bowl of soup (usually either chicken or tomato-based) and leftovers from lunch wrapped up in tortillas or made into quesadillas.

What are some all-time favourite Mexican dishes?

Mexican cuisine varies greatly by region but we think some of the greats include Mole, Elotes (Mexican corn on the cob), Enchiladas, Tacos (our favourites include Al Pastor and Chipotle Chicken Soft Taco Wraps), breakfast dishes such as Chilaquiles and Huevos Rancheros, and no list would be complete without Guacamole!

What are some typical Mexican lunches?

Lunch is considered the main meal of the day in Mexico and is often 2 courses. The first course is usually a soup or salad, while the second course is a meat, pork, chicken or seafood dish served with rice, beans, tortillas and salsas.
