Who doesn’t love a good nacho?!
I’m in love with these Carne Asada Nachos with Avocado Pico de Gallo. They remind me of this little drive through Mexican restaurant I used to live by. I would always pick up a large styrofoam container filled with tender shredded beef, and piled high with nacho toppings. It was a guilty pleasure of mine.
The carne asada is actually so easy to make since it’s cooked right in your slow cooker. Just rub down some flank steaks with a simple spice rub…
Chop up a red bell pepper, green bell pepper, an onion, and a jalapeño for a little kick.
Place the steaks in the bottom of the crock pot, place the diced peppers and onion on top, and let it go… Let it go, can’t hold it back anymore… oh, sorry. We’ve had Frozen playing on a constant loop here, and I don’t know if I can “let it go” anymore.
I guess that’s what happens when you have 3 daughters. My house is filled with Disney music, princess clothes, and bad karaoke.
What I wish it was filled with was more of this avocado pico de gallo!
Rather than mashing up those delicious California Avocados, I simply tossed them with some diced tomato, onion, jalapeño, lime and cilantro. It made the perfect topping to my tender shredded beef.
Don’t feel limited by the nachos, you can serve the carne asada in a taco shell with the avocado pico on top! Or wrap it up in a soft tortilla with some refried beans for a delicious burrito. Skip the carne asada all together if you want and just enjoy that delicious avocado pico de gallo with some chips!
No judgments here.
Wouldn’t these would make an excellent addition to your Cinco de Mayo bash?! Let’s be honest with each other; Cinco de Mayo is not the same without California Avocados. So make sure to add them to your list, and make these nachos while you’re at it!
