Turkey Chalupa's Recipe

Recommended Posts

Found this in a newspaper, it sounds awesome and is very easily gluten-free!

From "The texas cowboy kitchen" author grady spears

Turkey Chalupa's

2 TBLSP bacon drippings

2 cups pinto beans (15 ounce can) drained & rinsed

8 corn tostada's (or deepfry corn tortilla's)

2 cups montery jack cheese

3 cups lettuce

1 cup tomato

2 cups cooked turkey (or chicken) shredded

Garnishes options: onion, jalapeno and cilantro

Refried beans:

heat bacon dripping until smoking, add half the beans, heat for 1 minute, mash

lower heat, add remaining beans cook and mash over low heat until smooth


Preheat oven to 375'f

distribute beans over each tostada evenly

top with cheese and bake until cheese melts

remove from oven top with lettuce, tomato's, turkey then top with garnishes

Makes 4 tostada's

Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!
