Today’s recipe for chalupas is one of those speedy meals for those busy nights. You still can get dinner on the table without having to stop at a fast food chain. This will also help your pocket book too. It is a fairly inexpensive meal. Dinner couldn’t be easier. This would be excellent to even serve tonight if you have sports practice or games going on.
I found this version of Chalupas over a Recipe Girl. It’s very similar to a tostada. This version is made by crisping up some flour tortillas in the oven with some nonstick cooking spray. These would also be really yummy made with crock pot refried beans too.
You start by placing 4 tortillas on the baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Broil on the center rack in the oven for 4 minutes. You need to watch it though so they don’t burn or brown too quickly!
Next you remove them from oven and turn the tortillas over. Then spread ¼ cup refried beans over each tortilla with and sprinkle with ¼ cup cheese. Place bake in the oven to broil until the cheese is hot and bubbling and the tortillas are crisp. Serve immediately, topping each with some lettuce, tomato/salsa, sour cream and avocado/guacamole.
