  • 1 28-ounce bag frozen fries
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked carnitas
  • 1 to 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • chopped cilantro optional
  • Lime wedges optional


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake your fries according to package instructions, until just done.
  • Set oven temperature to 350°F.
  • Top cooked fries with warm carnitas and cheese, and return fries to the oven until cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add guacamole, pico de gallo, and sour cream. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy!’


If adding additional toppings that are best hot (like beans and corn), warm them before baking as they may not completely heat through while the cheese is melting.
