1. Tijuana Street Fries
If you’re the type of person who eats with their eyes first, then this recipe is for you. Best of all, these fries look as good as they taste. Bake fries and top them with pork roast, queso, salsa and avacado and you have Tijuana on a plate. The recipe is longer than we’re used to for fry toppings, but totally worth it once you taste the end result. Plus you’ll have a whole pork shoulder roast to eat too, so it’s much more than just fries.

This recipe can be tailored to fresh fries or the frozen variety if you’d like to cut time, the secret: the dried buttermilk mixed with flavorful herbs makes for savory mouth watering, finger licking good time.
