Carne Asada Fries

  • 1/2 recipe carne asada
  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 3 tbsp guacamole
  • 3 tbsp sour cream


  • Make the carne asada as per the those recipe instructions. Marinate the meat ahead of time, but you can grill it while your baking the fries.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit.
  • To make the fries, slice each russet potato in half, then half again. Slice each quarter into strips, then slice the strips into equally sized fries.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the fries. You may need two baking trays to keep the fries on a single layer. Add the olive oil and spices and toss to coat.
  • Bake the fries for 25-30 minutes and use a spatula to flip the fries halfway through.
  • To serve, place the fries on a plate, sprinkle with cheddar cheese and add the carne asada. Top with a dollop of guacamole and sour cream.
