Talupas Recipe

My son, Daniel, is home for a visit and I try to fix some of his favorites while he's home. When I was in Jr. High, a friend's mom used to make these for us....they called them 'Talupas', so that's what I've always called them.

Flat Flour Tortilla shells
Lean Ground Beef
Taco Seasoning (I prefer McCormick)
Refried Beans
Green Stem Onions
Shredded Cheese

Brown the ground beef and drain ~ prepare taco seasoning according to package directions

Heat refried beans thoroughly

Chop veggies while ground beef and beans are cooking

Heat tortilla shells in microwave (approximately 30 seconds for 2-3 shells)

Place tortilla shell on plate ~ layer refried beans, ground beef, lettuce, tomato, green onion and cheese ~ of course, you can add whatever 'taco like' toppings you prefer.

Use a fork to eat ~ gonna be a mess if you try to pick it up!

**use remainder of tortilla shells for breakfast burritos the next morning or bean and cheese burritos at lunch
