When I first came to San Diego, I saw something called “Carne Asada Fries” on the menu at Mexican restaurants. I didn’t think much of it until I tasted it. I mildly describe that day as MIND BLOWING! For Game Day, I can’t think of anything better to indulge in other than this dish. You know what I mean… When the score is tied, and all your faith is put on the quarterback who had that one injury. And people are shouting … iAndale, si puedes! Who doesn’t need something to munch during a time like that?
Football Sundays are a big deal at my house. Everyone brings a dish, but we supply the main dish. I don’t want to bore anyone with the same thing over and over again. So while I was at Walmart the other day, I decided to pick up some El Yucateco hot sauce for our favorite sports food: Carne Asada Fries.
What I love about Carne Asada Fries is that it involves the grill, meaning the hubs does the work not me. Ok, I do some work. I put the frozen fries into the oven, but everything else is store bought or stuff I have on hand. He marinates the carne asada the night before. When our friends arrive, all he has to do is take it out of the frig and head over to the grill. It’s done in minutes. Es lo más fácil.
I add a lot of different toppings – guacamole, extra bacon from that morning’s breakfast, sour cream, etc. Don’t be afraid to use the El Yucateco Red Habanero Hot Sauce. The red sauce has a little more kick than the average hot sauce but with far less vinegar. You get the true pepper flavor that I love. It’s delicious. I even sprinkle a little more for an extra kick. Oh yeah, the spicier, the better.
