Beefy Chalupas

by Laura

Tacos are a great go-to dinner when life gets crazy, especially now as we get closer to Christmas. Tacos tend to be a menu staple at our house, but it is always fun the change up the ordinary to something like these beefy chalupas.

This version gets a nice and thick taco shell made from biscuit dough. Then it gets filled with a filling beef and bean mixture. For the beans, I used a can of Bush’s new chili beans. I love that they have already taken the time to give these beans some flavor. It saves me time and means less simmering.

I used the kidney bean version , but the pinto bean or red bean version would also work well in this recipe. They also have a blach and white bean version now too!

To finish the whole thing off, just top with your favorite taco toppings! Of course this was a hit with my family, especially the boys. They were asking for more. That’s always a good sign.

First of all, I would never have thought to use biscuit dough—brilliant! Second, we just had tacos last night and I agree, they are perfect for busy nights around the holiday season!!
