It’s Monday! And sometimes to get through the week you need to have something to look forward to. Maybe it could be these amazing Carne Asada Fries. They are pretty easy to make – and very much so worth it. The good thing is you can also use any leftover ingredients and just have delicious tacos the next day. Do NOT skip out on the carne asada recipe we have, it takes this dish to the next level. Seriously! Also – you can make these with tater tots or waffle fries if that is your thing. :) I personally might go for waffle fries because they have a bigger landscape for asada and toppings than other types. Enjoy!
