Baja chalupa!!! Another famous taco bell recipe I tried to create at home. I’m so happy to see you guys loving and making these Taco bell recipes. I tried my best to recreate this one as well, so I hope you guys will like it. I took a shortcut and fried/ toasted ready made kontos greek style flatbreads and turned them into shells. They turned out pretty good if I say so myself. You can also buy the chalupa shells from Taco bell itself. I tried making my own at home but I wasn’t a fan. These turned out so much better in my opinion, and it's less work!!! So that’s a win win. Don't forget to tag me @zheelicious if you make this!
You can find these kontos greek flatbreads at walmart & stop and shop. Attaching a picture of the package for reference.
You can also buy ready made baja sauce that's sold by taco bell in a bottle at walmart.
I used my conventional oven to toast my chalupas. I toasted it on the toast setting.
To make Chalupa supreme add only sour cream.
Stay happy, Stay hungry!

For the chalupa shell you can shallow fry the flat breads on low heat about 1 minute per side. Then fold in half and place it on something like a potato masher to hold its shape. OR you can toast it for about 2-3 minutes and fold in half to hold its shape. Both methods work well!
4. Assemble: Spread some beans, top it with the baja sauce, sour cream, cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and jalapeno.
5. Serve with your favorite hot sauce!
