California Carne Asada Burritos stuffed with thinly sliced, tender marinated Carne Asada, cheese, salsa, avocado crema and the best part – Mexican French Fries!!!
I mentioned in my Best Carne Asada post how much Patrick adores carne asada burritos, but he doesn’t just devour carne asada burritos every week, but California Carne Asada Burritos AKA the Best burritos ever as far as these San Diegans are concerned. After I cojuired up my favorite carne asada recipe, I knew California Burritos were the next on the make ASAP list. And they should be at the top of your make ASAP list – like for Labor Day weekend!
These burritos begin with a bed of juicy marinated and spice rubbed tender, melt in your mouth grilled steak…
Then get piled high with baked Mexican Street Fries spiced with salt, pepper, garlic powder, ground cumin and chipotle pepper. These Mexican Fries have their very own post because they are so addicting all on their own – but in these burritos…
…smothered with cheese, salsa and avocado crema – indescribable!!!
These burritos are delish just like this, but part of their beauty is they are totally customizable – so great for crowds! Following the lead of our favorite local restaurant burrito named the “Carlsbad Burrito,” we love to stuff our California Burrito with sweet, caramelized grilled pineapple.
The sweet, caramelized pineapple is just made for the smokey meat and spiced Mexican Fries – drool…..
So the carne asada burrito becomes a California Burrito and finally the ultimate Carlsbad Burrito. AKA the burrito my sister in law has been asking me to recreate since she tasted its perfection forever ago. AKA the burrito we take everyone visiting to devour. AKA the burrito now we can all devour at home at a fraction of the cost with an explosion of flavor. Serve your carne asada burritos with Mexican Rice or Cilantro Lime Rice, a big pile of chips and either homemade salsa, or salsa verde and you have a restaurant quality meal in the comfort of your own home!
