A chalupa is a canoe. You may have seen this picture on a Taco Bell Menu board. Taco Bell has a hefty menu of Chalupas which is like a big thick taco shell with the bean mixture inside. This Chalupa recipe is like a Mexican meat and bean dish, similar to chili. It is good to have a crockpot full of Chalupa, a bowl of chips and small bowls of condiments around when company arrives.

7 cups water
cup chopped onions
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano

Put all ingredients in a Dutch oven, an electric crockery cooker, or a heavy kettle. 

  1. Cover and simmer about 5 hours, or until the roast falls apart and the beans are done. 

  2. Uncover and cook about hour, until the desired thickness is achieved.
