Carne asada fries

Carne Asada fries is not an everyday recipe, but when you are in the mood for something indulgent, then this should definitely be on your list.

It’s easy to make (maybe too easy!) and super delicious. You can use carne asada leftovers (my preferred method) or make it meat from scratch with this recipe!

For the fries, unless you own a deep fryer or want to make this healthier by roasting instead of frying your potatoes, I recommend just buying frozen french fries.

I like my fries thin and super crispy for this recipe, and in my experience, it’s hard to achieve that unless you deep fry the potatoes.

But if you like steak fries or want to even try sweet potato fries with this recipe, I say go for it! There are no rules when it comes to cooking – at least in my kitchen, anyway.

Assembling the Carne Asada Fries

Ingredients to make carne asada fries - diced beef, french fries, guacamole, cheese, onions, tomatoes, cilantro and sour cream
