Mexican Chalupas Tacos

Jean P.


I like Chalupas. This recipe is so easy,
and really tastes fabulous. Not mexican authentic, but isn't home made a great alternative to fast food?
Put ingredients in the Crockpot before bed, then leave it on Low overnight. Fall apart tender, and the house smells wonderful...
you can put it in freezer containers and make the amount you need for each meal.

Chalupas (My Way) Tia Rosa FlATBREAD 10inch tortilla size; 2 per hungry person.
you'll find this at Ralph's in my area.
Fry in large skillet of hot veg. oil; bending with metal tongs after 1 min. to golden, hold taco bend and flip to finish
other side of homemade shell. Don't wait too long or you can't bend swollen shell.
Drain and cool down cooked shells on paper toweling. Set aside. Assemble the Chalupas.
Spread refried beans lightly within each shell...then start filling with condiments
listed below it. If you add the cooked Chalupa meat after the tomatoes; it helps
hold ingredients within the shell for eating it neater!
Serve with the meat warmed up, sprinkling
some of the suggested cheese across the top of each one; or use favorite shredded or mexican crumble choice;like cojita!
