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.
-2 lb beef tenderloin
-2 tsp noodle sauce (we used Sin Hai Ting brand)
-4 tsp soy sauce
-3 cloves garlic
-~2 tsp sugar
- Mix noodle sauce, soy sauce, garlic, and sugar in a bowl and mix thoroughly
- Cut up beef tenderloin into small cubical pieces

- Heat a pan on HIGH heat and add meat mixture to the pan. Stir the meat until meat is seared
- Drizzle chips with cheese and place in oven (~300F for 10-15 minutes; or until cheese is melted)
- Remove chips from oven and put cooked meat onto the chips
