Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups unbleached flour
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
    1 cup milk
    Oil for deep fat frying

Directions

To make the chalupa shell, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add shortening and milk. Shape dough into a long roll and divide equally into 6 balls. Pat each ball out into a circle approx. 5-inches in diameter (make the circles thinner in the middle so there will be a depression to hold the toppings).

Fry each circle in hot oil until they are puffed and golden brown on both sides (turn once). Drain on absorbent paper towels.

Add your choice of ground beef, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, peppers, and cheese. You may also add salsa, sliced black olives, sour cream, or guacamole.

Makes 6 very large chalupas.
