MATURE COMBO, YOU'LL END UP WITH UNHAPPY NACHOS.
END OF LECTURE. ENJOY YOUR BEER, ENJOY THE MOVIE, AND LOVE YOUR NACHOS.

Caldillo with Cornmeal Doughballs

Beef stew to you and me, every country has one. In Mexico it’s drunk with beer and there’s usually a bottle poured into the stew. A bottle of Negra Modelo makes sense, dark and rich just like the chile ancho that flavours this simple beef dish

Lupe Pintos Most Popular Fajita Recipe

Lupe Pintos' Famous Chile Con Carne

Lupe Pintos' Famous Chile Con Carne

Fast becoming a bit of a legend, cooked and loved by thousands, the chorizo and chipotles create the most amazing flavour, super market chorizo don’t work, come see Lupe.

 

Mexican Chorizo Enchiladas

Mexican chorizo is completely different from the Spanish one we sell at Lupe Pinto’s. Here’s a recipe for a bulk chorizo mix that you can use for breakfast burritos or enchiladas. If you have a sausage machine you can try making your own home made Mexican sausage.

Pozole Verde

Traditionally a massive pot containing a pig’s head, ears and all. The guest of honour gets an eye. The preparation of the hominy is an overnight task in itself, so this practical version uses canned hominy and some more acceptable pork cuts. If you really want to get all traditional you can always have your butcher save an eye. The end result is a soupy stew. I love canned hominy; it reminds me of corn gnocchi.

Quesadillas

Quesadillas

This is an easy way of using up your flour tortillas. A great snack or starter.

When you have a bunch ready, serve with your favourite salsa.

Rancho Picante's Chili con Carne

Following the success of the famous one, I decided to introduce a Yucatan style chile con carne, based on cochinita pibil, with achiote and orange juice. The dish is named after Ian the Glasgow manager’s club. Cool sounds, hot chile. Will it ever be as popular as the first one? Well that’s entirely up to you.

Salsa Rojo

Salsa Rojo

Great as a base sauce for main dishes like pork chops, steaks and meat balls. You can add cream, stock, other chile combinations. Use them as enchilada sauces, cooking sauces or as a table sauce for your favourite Mexican dishes.

Tinga

This is a stewed and shredded meat dish, elaborately garnished and served with tortillas for that “roll your own taco” experience. This is much more typical south of the border than fajitas. You can use the shredded meat for enchiladas or as a topping, filling or stuffing for a whole host of Mexican dishes.
