Since moving to San Diego over 5 years ago I have fallen in love with many things like the beach, my boyfriend Jarod, and of course amazing Mexican food. In honor of #NationalTacoDay I thought it was only fitting that I share this recipe for San Diego Tacos.
What are San Diego Tacos you ask? Well, if you’ve ever visited or live in sunny Southern California you may have tried our famous California Burritos. Which Jarod discovered on a trip to Las Vegas was a weird thing to request when not in California. Interestingly enough, California Burritos originated in San Diego. Which doesn’t surprise me since San Diego is well known for several things like our world famous Zoo, perfect weather and of course Mexican Food.
California burritos are a delicious combination of carne asada, fries, guacamole, cheese, salsa, and sour cream. So I decided to take inspiration from most of those ingredients to craft my own recipe for some delicious San Diego Tacos.
I made the guacamole, pico de gallo and fries from scratch because I wanted to go all out for this one. However I’ll be adding the recipes for those at a later time so be sure to sign up for my mailing list so you can check back for when those are added.
French Fries (Fresh Or Frozen Baked According To Packaging)
1 ½ lbs. Carne Asada Meat
1 10 oz. Can Red Chile Sauce
1 Tsp. Cumin
1 Tsp. Chili Powder
1 Tsp. Garlic Salt
