Servings: 6 servings
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.
