[Chiefs Eats] Carne Asada Fries

Football season is finally here! My favorite time of the year to show team spirit and make some good snacks and appetizers that everyone can enjoy.

This season, I’ve partnered up with the Kansas City Chiefs to give you some delish dishes and dips that match up with their competition traditional food called Chief’s Eats. I’m so excited to share all these touchdown worthy recipes with you and the AFC West. So move over Alex Smith, theres a new quarterback in town and I’m throwing hail mary’s in the kitchen like a pro!

Week one we have Chiefs vs. Chargers this Sunday, September 11, at 10:00 AM PST on CBS at and it’s going to be a great match up. So roll up your sleeves and turn the surround sound on because it’s game time baby!

Ingredients

  • 4-6 medium Yukon gold potatoes
  • vegetable oil (enough to fill half of the frying pan)
  • Pico de gallo (chopped white onion, tomatoes and cilantro)
  • 1 bag of sharp Cheddar cheese 
  • Guacamole 
  • Sour cream
    • For the steak (let marinade with the following for 3-6 hours)
      • 1 pound flank steak
        2 garlic cloves
        1 jalapeno, roughly chopped
        7-10 leaves of cilantro
        2 limes, squeezed
        1 orange, juiced
        1/2 cup olive oil
      • Spices: garlic, pepper, seasoning salt

Directions: 

  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees and start a frying pan to heat on medium-high heat. While the oven and oil is warming up, being to cut your fresh, french fries into thin strips to place in the frying pan. 
  2. Once the oven is ready, place your carne asada in the oven to cook for about 15 minutes. 
  3. Drop in your fresh cut fries now that the oil is hot but do be careful, we have a game to watch and enjoy people! 
  4. Remove your steak from the oven, set aside to cool off and cut into short strips for your fries. 
  5. Remove the fries from the hot oil and place them in a large bowl, lined with a paper towel (or two) to remove the excess oil. Sprinkle on some kosher salt, seasoning salt, garlic salt, or no salt. Up to you,
  6. On an oven safe pan or cookie sheet, place a mound of fries, then the carne asada strips and handfuls of cheddar cheese. Return back in the oven to let the cheese melt and get delicious for no more than 3-5 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer your carne asada fries to a plate. Here is where the party begins. Add your pico, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or any other toppings your heart desires, you’re the quarterback, what you say goes. 

Touchdown! It’s time to eat like a Chief!
