What are Gran Luchito's Fajita and Taco Mixes?

Our 3 Fajita and Taco Mixes are different blends of chillies, spices and herbs that add tons of flavour to the dishes that you are cooking. They instantly Mexicanise your recipes, add subtle heat (depending on how much you use), and either a smoky, zesty or sweet and tangy kick.

How do you use these fajita and taco mixes?

The consistency of these make them really easy to just sprinkle into your cooking. Alternatively, you can mix them with a bit of oil and then baste or marinate your meat and veggies.

How much of these fajita and taco mixes do you need to use?

If you would like a subtle kick, then add a small pinch per portion of meat, but for a stronger flavour then add a couple of pinches. For a batch of meat for 4 people, add a couple of teaspoons.

Is fajita mix and taco mix the same?

Generally they are the same, although sometimes taco seasoning tends to have a bit more chilli in it.
