Carne Asada Fries

READY IN: 5hrs




  • Fries:
  • Heat oil in a fryer to 325 degrees F.
  • Skin potatoes, and cut into uniform sized matchsticks.
  • Place the cut potatoes in a bowl of ice water to release some of the starch and to keep them from browning.
  • Dry the potatoes strips thoroughly to keep them from splattering.
  • Fry the potatoes for 3 minutes until soft but not golden brown, do not over-crowd them.
  • Remove and place on paper towel. Turn heat up to 350, and place back in fryer for 4 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let drain on paper towels.
  • Carne Asada:
  • Mix tequila, juices, garlic, onion, Tabasco, and pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Add steaks to marinade, ensuring they are completely covered.
  • Place in refrigerator 4-6 hours, turning occasionally to ensure they stay submerged in marinade.
  • Remove steaks, and grill about 7 minutes on each side.
  • Cut into 1"x1/2" strips, set aside.
  • Guacamole:
  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend with hand blender until smooth, or mash with a fork.
  • Put a handful of fries in a bowl and top with 1/2 cup cheese, 1/2 cup carne asada strips, 1/4 cup guacmole, and 1/4 cup sour cream. Enjoy! (:
