So many people tell me that it just takes too long to home cook meals. It seems there just isn’t enough time in the day to for cooking meals. I agree. Most days are like that. That is why I have collected so many recipes that are really quick to make and ready to serve the minute that I walk in the door. Slow Cooker Pork Chalupa’s definitely fit all of those requirements. Besides being fast to put together they are super tasty. We always have leftovers. The Chalupa’s can be switched up to make the meal only a semi-leftover meal. That makes the next few days of dinner more exicting.
Put a roast in a slow cooker and sprinkle taco seasoning over the top. Pour 1/2 cup water into the slow cooker. Let it cook on low overnight. Or you can cook it on high for 4-5 hours until it is easy to shred. I like the overnight method because I shred the pork the next morning. I finish the chalupas and dinner is ready by about nine in the morning. All I have to do is put it back on the slow cooker a few hours before dinner.
After pork is cooked remove it from the slow cooker and shred. Drain leftover meat juice in slow cooker. Return shredded pork to slow cooker.
Drain and rinse beans.
Serve the Pork Chalupas on a tortilla with sour cream, grated cheese, guacamole, lettuce, olives and salsa.
For round two of the Pork Chalupa’s serve on tortilla chips with desired toppings.
Roll into burritos, cover with cheese, bake for a few minutes and enjoy.
See, this is so versatile. And you only really have to cook one time.
