The shredded beef is sandwiched between two crispy tacos with generous amounts of refried beans and cheese. Finished off with a fresh avocado salad.

This recipe has come a long way for me. Elementary school along the way. In fourth and fifth grade, I went to an elementary school in Southern Nevada. The most popular lunch at the cafeteria is pizza (and chalupas, of course. I’m a girl who brings a lunch bag from home, which means I always have something to swap for one of those delicious little chalupas. Snack cakes and Cookies have always been the price, but I always stick to them. I love those things! They’re really just some quesadillas with beans and cheese in the middle and top. There’s always some lame excuse to put fresh salsa on top. It’s a school cafeteria after all. Well, I knew it was time to make an adult version of this favorite childhood treat. And this? These chalupas are amazing! They’re even better than I remember!

  • 2 cup refried beans
  • 2 cup cooked shredded beef
  • 4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

instruct

  • Pour the oil into a heavy skillet and cover the bottom with about 1/2 to 1 inch of oil. Heat to 350 degrees.

  • Working 1 or 2 at a time, fry tortillas for about 60 seconds per side, until crisp and golden. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Spread some refried beans on one of the cooked tortillas. Top with a pinch of mozzarella, some shredded beef, and more cheese. Top with another sandwich-like tortilla, then top with another generous pinch of cheese. Put on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas until you have 6 chalupas. Bake the chalupas in the oven for 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

  • Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, avocado, onion, cilantro, salt, and lime juice in a bowl to make avocado salsa.

  • Serve the chalupas immediately with a tablespoon of avocado salsa and some sour cream.
