Chalupa Grande Recipe

Mother made this dish for field lunches during cotton harvest. She's a great cook, and I give her lots of credit for my kitchen know-how. My husband, Jeff, and I have a 1-1/2-year-old daughter. I plan to pass Mom's recipes on to her.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2011

This came out really good and made a generous amount. I used a boneless pork roast that was on sale. Froze the leftovers for a couple more meals. Was good, but might add a little more spice and green chili for next time. I'll be making this again!!
