Carne Asada Nachos recipe
Who doesn’t love nachos? They’re packed with cheese, ingredients, and the final crunch of a perfectly crunchy tortilla chip. You can make them as a side dish, an appetizer, or in this case, a stew! (Which corresponds to a simple cleaning). I love it when nachos are packed with protein because it’s like a stew meal for my family. This recipe is not only easy, but also tastes delicious! It has protein, grains and vegetables.
I like to make my carne asada at the beginning of the week and keep it in my fridge to use on the go for recipes like this one. Then when I make these, the meat is already cooked and ready to go, and all I have to do is toss them together. You don’t want to miss these! The carne asada is so tender and juicy. It really takes those nachos to a level.
