Mucho Bueno's carne asada fries with a Ballast Point Commodore

Foodies from around the area showed up for the “Food Trucks Invade” event at the Logon Cafe on Nov. 11. Dat Mac, Blue Dave’s Barbecue and Pops and Rockets ice pops sold a variety of delicious dinners and desserts. Mucho Bueno served some Tex-Mex favorites like the carne asada fries and spicy shrimp taco pictured. The carne asada fries with an ample amount of carne asada, lots of cheese, sour cream, guacamole and salsa were out of this world and well worth the 15-minute wait. It paired great with the Ballast Point Commodore.

The turkey is, and should be, the main event of your Thanksgiving meal, but without complementing the juicy bird with some delicious sides, your meal won’t be complete.

What is a Thanksgiving feast with bread on your food spread? Don’t just go to the store and buy the ones you stick in your over for a few minutes when you can spend less and make the dough, which also taste much better. There are soft dinner no knead rolls that are waiting to be buttered. This recipe makes 12 rolls.
