for 2 servings

Oven-Baked French Fries

  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Carne Asada

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • ½ cup (120 mL) fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) fresh lime juice
  • ½ lb (225 g) flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ½ cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese

For Serving

  • sour cream
  • guacamole
  • diced tomatoes
  • fresh cilantro leaves
  • cotija cheese, grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the potatoes into wedges. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, and paprika until each fry is fully coated. Place the fries on the baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the fries are crispy and golden brown.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, garlic, cilantro, orange juice, and lime juice. Add the flank steak and marinate for 20 minutes.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet with the canola oil over medium heat. Cook the steak for 3 minutes on both sides for medium-cooked steak. Remove the steak and let it rest for 10 minutes before dicing.
  5. In an ovenproof skillet, place the baked french fries, Pepper Jack cheese, and diced carne asada, then broil until the cheese is melted.
  6. Before serving, top with sour cream, guacamole, diced tomatoes, cilantro, and grated cotija cheese.
  7. Enjoy!
