Carne Asada Fries

I LOVE carne asada fries from Betos. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them... but they're a bit pricey (about $8) and sooo not good for you. So I thought I'd recreate them at home. They were just as good, not fried and the kids loved them. I simmered the meat for quite a while and it came out fantastic! I'm usually a want-it-now person, but these were worth the wait!

Carne Asada Fries

1 T. oil
1 lb beef stewing meat (chopped small)
1/4 c. diced onions
1/4 c. diced celery
1 can enchilada or red sauce

frozen fries
shredded cheese

other toppings as wanted:
salsa
sour cream
ketchup
guacamole

Brown the meat, onions and celery in the oil until done. Stir in the enchilada sauce, I used Walmart's red sauce. Simmer for an hour or so, I simmered for 15 minutes with the lid on and then 15 minutes with the lid off, etc... stirring each time I changed the lid. While the meat cooks, bake your fries in the oven until done. Top the fries with your delicious carne asada meat and whatever else you like. MMmmmmmm

And here are Betos Carne Asada Fries that inspired it all :)
