Carne Asada Chips

Living in San Diego all my life, I have been blessed with the numerous amounts of fresh and tasty Mexican cuisine that has made its mark and has ultimately fused with the city’s culture. The strong combination of juicy marination and tender texture of carne asada meat, fresh guacamole and flavorful sour cream all wrapped in a tortilla/taco shell is always hard to say no to. My family’s love for the food had us curious to try our own spin on it, and it was definitely worth diving into; so we decided to mix up some of our tradional Vietnamese seasonings to make a Mexican inspired dish, and it couldn’t have turned out better.
