Vegetable oil

12 Corn tortillas

6 Cups Refried Beans

8 oz. pkg. shredded  sharp cheddar cheese

1 Large Tomato, chopped

3 Cups Lettuce, shredded


In a small skillet, heat about 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Test the oil for

proper temperature by putting in a small piece of tortilla. When the oil

reaches the temperature where it immediately begins to bubble

over the tortilla as soon as it is put in the oil and the tortilla piece

becomes crisp  quickly, you are ready.

Fry tortillas completely flat on both sides until very crisp. Drain and keep

warm on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper in a warm oven.

Spread about 1/4 inch thick layer of refried beans on each fried tortilla.

Top with a generous amount of sharp Cheddar cheese and small amount of

chopped onion.

Place assembled chalupas on a cookie sheet and brown under broiler until

cheese melts. Watch them carefully under the broiler, they can burn

quickly. Top with shredded lettuce and tomato and serve.
