Ok I recently posted a recipe for Pico de Gallo. I made that to go with my Carne Asada. Instead of traditionally grilling this meat I thought why not throw it in the crock pot with some jalapeno peppers and onions along with all the spices that is rubbed on the meat and leave it cook low and slow.
Best idea ever!! It was so easy to shred basically take your fork and touch the meat it falls apart :)
[recipe title="Carne Asada With a Twist" servings="8" time="15 min prep 8hrs slow cooking" difficulty="easy"]
- 2 pounds of Carne Asada
- 1 cooking onion chopped up
- 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
- 2 tsp taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup of water
Take veggies and place on the bottom of your crock pot add the 1/2 cup of water. Place your Carne Asada beef in your crock pot and sprinkle even more mexican seasoning on top of your beef. Aprox 2 teaspoons. Turn to low and walk away for 8 to 10 hours.
I also made guacamole. I used to put all sorts of things in my "guac" but since moving to an area that is very authentic mexican food you don't mess with the "guac"!!
Yup that is it folks!! Mash your avocado season with salt and add lime juice and walk away :)
So I made beef fajitas with my Carne Asada:
Warm your tortillas up on the stove till it gets air bubbles and toasty warm, keep your flame low and use tongs to constantly move your tortilla so it doesn't burn
Now assemble and add some of your favorite cheese.
Fold up and enjoy!
