See below for our frequently asked questions on mild Mexican recipes. Feel free to leave a question in the comments section of our recipe pages. If you would like to learn more about Mexican cooking check out the Gran Luchito Youtube Channel.

Is Mexican food spicy?

Mexican food has a reputation for being spicy, but it has a wide range of flavors and while many spices are used for cooking, not all are spicy. Many dishes also have subtle flavors, loved for their flavors and not just their heat.

What Mexican food is not spicy?

A lot of the components used in Mexican food are not spicy. Beans, corn, rice, tortillas, sauces, herbs, cheese and most vegetables used aren't, as well as plenty of spices. There are many variations of mild tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas that don't have heat, and if you're making them at home, recipes can be adapted.

Does milk cool down spicy foods?

Yes! Many milk-based products contain a protein called casein, which can help break down capsaicin, an oily chemical compound in chili peppers. Since capsaicin is fat-soluble, rinsing with milk fat helps ease the burn. For more on this check out our blog on How To Cool Down Spicy Food!

What are Gran Luchito's most popular non spicy recipes?

Our Steak Fajitas, Chicken Quesadilla, Fish Tacos and Carne Asada Tacos are most popular. Others include our side dishes such as Pico de Gallo, Guacamole and Mexican Rice.
