You can use one rotisserie chicken but you can also start with 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts and cook then shred.
You can use canned salsa, I’d highly recommend stirring in a few tablespoons of water to thin them out. I used homemade but canned works fine too.
You can use use cheese of your choice as I used half monterey jack and half cheddar, but a pre-shredded Mexican blend works fine too.👍👌

From the childhood we are so much fond of these Mexican delights, which we often used to have/eat for the change, and which was my favorite amongst all siblings, I like Taco Bell’s Chalupas ! you will too love this Homemade Chalupas Preparation that you can make, This bread is easy to make and fill with whatever you want or what all left over food you have at home. My mother used to fill it with cheese, beans and minced meat. Umm… yummy😋😋👍❤️
Ingredients for making the Chalupas
2 ¼ cup refined flour
1 tbsp Baking powder
½ tsp Salt/ to taste
30 gms shortening
1 cup milk
Canola oil, for frying
450 gms ground chicken cooked
Sharp cheddar cheese
Method of making the Chalupas
Heat the oil in a heavy duty shallow skillet such as a cast iron skillet.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening. Use a fork to mix the ingredients together. Pour the milk into the dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon to mix ingredients in with the milk to form a ball of dough.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and roll until smooth. Mold the dough into a loaf about 8 inches. Divide the dough in half, then into fourths. See the picture above. Roll each individual section into a ball and roll out the small ball of dough into a round circle about 4-5 inches wide.
Use tong and carefully dip half of the chalupa dough into the hot oil. Once that half of the dough has begun to fry up but not quite brown, flip the chalupa bread with the other half of the dough frying in the oil. This is if you want to try to have the chalupas have the dip on the bottom for your fillings. If it doesn’t matter to you, just fry on both sides for 2 minutes until golden brown and remove from oil onto cooling rack lined with paper towels.
Fill your chalupas with chicken, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and a dollop of sour cream. Top with taco sauce of your choice.
If you loved to have more cheese then again you grate more cheese on the top of the filling to give it more cheesy texture.🥰❤️👌😋
