Chalupa Recipe | Taste of Home Recipes

I keep roast pork in the freezer. I get a 9-10 lb loin and roast it with 4 envelopes of onion soup mix and black pepper, throw it in the crock pot on low overnight and tear it up and put in freezer bags. I plan on using about 4 cups of roast (2 pkgs from the freezer, thawed) and adding 2 cans of pinto or black beans or mix of the two and about 1 cup water and spices onions garlic and chilies and throwing it in the crock pot on high for about an hour. I can see putting about a tablespoon of spicy ranch on a tortilla and adding these ingredients, too. This looks yummy!
