This was great 'football food'! Though I don't really know what the techinical deifintion of a 'chalupa is'....it was NOT what you get at Taco Bell when you orde a chalupa that's for sure! This is a clearly written recipe, easy to follow, and everyone at home liked the results. My only changes were to suit personal tastes, I used fresh cilantro during and again at the end, used Emeril's recipe for "essence" in lieu of the 'cajun seasoning' and instead of pouring this over chips, we heaped into flour tortillas, with a squeeze of lime and the other traditional accompaniments! Thank you for sharing, this was a fun recipe to try.
