Santa Maria launches food-to-go recipes for operators

Called Mexi-Go, the recipes are based around classic Mexican hand-held dishes such as taquitos, tacos and burritos and cater for different dietary requirements and palates, swapping meat for plant-based options, and taking inspiration from a range of global cuisines.

Suiting eat-in or takeaway providers, Mexi-Go’s customisable menus have been created to help operators sell extras like toppings or side dishes.

“One of the most popular street food dishes is the taco. Hard or soft, tacos are incredibly versatile. Load them up with toppings without the need to go traditional. And while slow-cooked birria beef is a classic, Mexi-Go’s cheeseburger taco brings a twist to an old favourite,” says Santa Maria’s Taste Creator Barney MacAdam.

“Eminently scalable, we suggest three tacos per main meal serving – two for a starter and one for a side. They can also be scaled up for a sharing platter, so food operators can cater for different budgets, dining experiences and diets all in one.”


Customisation on menus has increased by more than 38% year-on-year, according to Santa Maria, and 28% of menus are now customisable. Mexican food is a leading emerging food trend, with 80% of people saying they would choose a Mexican dish when eating out, it adds.

“The new Mexi-Go concept provides solutions for all operators from specialist Mexican outlets and quick serve eateries to general pubs and restaurants.,” says Nick Minchin, marketing manager for UK & IRE at Santa Maria.

“Alongside the recipes, operators also have access to insights, tips on how to drive revenue, culinary hacks, digital assets and imagery, which is all free to download and use.”
