He started by whipping up all the components — including the golden fries, tomato salsa, and guacamole.

To make the chips, he peeled and cut the potatoes into thick chips before placing them in a pan of salted water to pre-cook them.

Parboiling helps reduce cooking time in the deep fryer or oven – and ensures that the fries are golden brown and crispy on the outside and super fluffy on the inside.

To make the carne asada, he cut the beef into cubes and set them aside to marinate in the spice mix.

In a bowl, add the diced tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, a pinch of salt, lemon juice, and a drizzle of olive oil to make the pico de gallo, also known as salsa.

On high heat he cooked the marinated beef in a frying pan with oil for about five minutes medium rare.

To assemble, Morgan spread the tortilla wrap with fries, followed by beef, salsa, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream.

Finally, he folded the two side flaps toward the center, but not all the way toward the center, then unrolled the side of the tortilla with the filling.

His video has since been viewed more than 400,000 times and many said they couldn’t wait to try the recipe at home.
