Cheat Carne Asada!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Manic: You crave carne asada for dinner tonight, but don’t have time to season and marinate the meat.

Managed: Cheat and get the carne asada meat from Trader Joe’s!  Here is what I do to make this dish (with help from Trader Joe’s) fast and tasty.

Stuff You Need:

Trader Joe’s Carne Asada Seasoned Thinly Sliced Beef Sirloin (shown in package so you see what to buy)


Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Homemade Guacamole (see my recipe for this under my Food category)


1.  Open Trader Joe’s package and unroll the meat.  Cook in skillet until done.  Once mine is finished cooking, I cut into strips.

2.  Fill a tortilla with meat and shredded cheese.  Wrap the tortilla in three easy steps (shown in these pictures).

3.  Then place tortilla in preheated Big Boss Grill (or a similar grill) and cook on each side for a minute or so.

4.  Serve with a side of salsa and guacamole and you’ve got a quick dinner and a happy full family.  I added a side of apples for good health. 🙂

Thanks Trader Joe’s!
