Each week on Taco Tuesday we head to the local hole-in-the-wall Mexican drive-thru and pick up dinner. It might be Taco Tuesday, but the kids always get cheese quesadillas, and Jay and I, get a California Burrito, which is carne asada with fries.
In my never-ending quest to come up with food that the kids can eat when we are rushing with homework and after school activities, I recently made Carne Asada Fries. The kids could pick and choose their toppings which was perfect for them.
I needed the recipe to be kept at about 30-minutes because that is usually how much time I have after finishing homework and before my son has to go to his martial arts class.
