It’s time to get ridiculous and make these Ahi Poke Wachos! Fresh ahi tuna on a bed of crispy waffle fries and drizzled with a spicy Sriracha mayo.
Seriously I don’t know what happened. All It took was a couple of food truck experiences lately and wachos are my favorite ridiculous food!
If wachos isn’t a real word yet, it should be.
Crispy waffle fries covered in homemade Ahi Poke Tuna The experience is like the first taste of wine after going through two sets of common core homework, or thinking you’re all out of Nespresso pods and finding one at the back of the cupboard.
Ahi poke wachos are moment-changing!
This is the kind of food that would want me to own my own food truck.
We all know that traditional nachos are covered in a cheese sauce but I couldn’t bring myself to kill my not so inexpensive ahi. The spicy Sriracha mayo works perfect as a cover, along with some toasted sesame seeds and crushed rice crackers for some extra crunch.
Bring the food truck food to yourself and make your own ahi poke wachos!
