Mexican Winter Recipes

Gran Luchito Best

Winter Recipes

All of our Mexican winter recipes have one thing in common; every one of them is a hot dish designed to enjoy on cold winter days and nights! A beef stew on the hob in the form of our easy chilli con carne, a super easy Mexican chicken casserole, and a classic Mexican chicken soup are our favourite comfort food recipes, as seen below. The chilli and soup are great Mexican winter dishes to try after work on a weekday with the chicken stew best left to a weekend when you have more time to really let it slow cook.

Everything you need to make delicious Mexican winter recipes at home

Creating warming Mexican winter recipes at home couldn’t be easier with Gran Luchito!

First of all you will need some of our signature Chipotle Paste. This is our secret weapon which we add to many of our easy winter dishes. It creates the smoky depth of flavour that we love so much and makes any dish Mexican.

Always having some of our black Cantina Beans in your cupboard means you can quickly add more flavour and texture to your soups and stews, and of course chilli.

Toppings such as our Green Serrano Chillies add spice, and Jalapeno & Pineapple take things up a notch by adding a burst of Mexican sweet heat.

Don’t forget some Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips to have on the side, for dunking into your healthy winter recipes or enjoying alongside them. Some Soft Taco Wraps would also be needed if you’re making enchiladas.
