This is my ode to the Carne Asada Fries. Since I moved to the midwest, I have really, really, really, and really, oh yea, really missed all the diverse cuisines you can eat in California. One dish I miss is the Carne Asada Fries. You can find the best one at Albertacos in Cypress. Let me tell you… this is an amazing concoction of french fries, carne asada, sour cream, cheese and guacamole. I used to eat this with my boyfriend now husband since highschool. My sister and I can eat this whole thing in less than 5 minutes. It is quite an amazing scene to watch us devour this so quickly.
All I do now is gawk at this picture and reminisce about all the times I’ve stuffed my face with carne asada fries. Since I know this is full of calories, I’ve been thinking about how to create a healthy alternative. What about sweet potato fries instead of french fries, grilled chicken breast instead of carne asada, garlic infused greek yogurt instead of sour cream, lowfat cheese, and guacamole. I’ll try that recipe and give an update later. I know it doesn’t sound as amazing as the real carne asada fries, but I’m thousands of miles away and I need to eat healthier. Maybe it’s better that I’m thousands of miles away from the almighty carne asada fries. Yes, I just wrote about carne asada fries. Don’t judge me.
