    Directions

    1. Place all ingredients for the carne asada in crockpot, cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Use a fork to shred the carne asada and leave in crockpot on warm while you make the rest.
    2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Wash sweet potatoes then slice into fry size pieces. Toss fries in ghee and sprinkle with salt. Place all fries on cooling rack without overlapping. Place in oven to bake for 30 minutes then turn fries over, sprinkle with adobo seasoning, and cook for 15 more minutes to help cook evenly.
    3. While sweet potatoes cook, make the tomato salsa: mix all ingredients in a bowl then cover and place in the fridge to cool.
    4. Make the guacamole: mix all the ingredients in a bowl then cover and place in the fridge to cool.
    5. Once sweet potato fries are done cooking, remove from oven and place on a baking sheet or in cast iron skillet, top with cheese then place back in the oven for 10 minutes to melt cheese.
    6. Lastly, top fries with shredded carne asada, tomato salsa, guacamole, cilantro, and jalapeños!
