A chalupa: is a specialty dish of south-central Mexico, including the states of Hidalgo, Puebla, Guerrero, and Oaxaca.
Chalupas are made by pressing a thin layer of masa dough around the outside of a small mold, in the process creating a concave container resembling the boat of the same name, and then deep frying the result to produce crisp, shallow corn cups. These are filled with various ingredients such as shredded chicken, pork, chopped onion, chipotle pepper, red salsa, and/or green salsa. They can in many cases resemble tostadas since both are made of a fried or baked masa-based dough.
Traditional chalupas, as found in Cholula, Puebla, are small, thick, boat-shaped fried masa topped only with salsa, cheese and shredded lettuce. Other regions in Mexico add variations, which can include chorizo, pork, shredded chicken, or re-fried beans, in addition to the classic cheese, salsa, and lettuce toppings. In other instances, the fried masa shape is round, resembling a tostada, with traditional chalupa toppings.Wiki

Instructions
 

  • Warm up a small amount of oil in a pan and set it to high heat if you're going to be using corn tortillas as opposed to ready-made chalupa or tostada shells. To "fried" the tortillas, add them one at a time and cook them for a couple of minutes on each side, just until they begin to take on the appearance of being toasted. Take the tortillas out of the pan and place them on paper towels, both on top of and below other paper towels, so that the oil may be absorbed.
  • Prepare the oven's broiler. Arrange the shells in a single layer on a baking sheet. Spread some refried beans all the way to the edge of each tortilla and place it on top of the tacos. After topping the beans with some chicken, sprinkle some Monterrey jack cheese over the chicken. Put the chalupas in the broiler for a few minutes, or until the cheese begins to bubble and the chicken begins to color very little.
  • After placing the chalupas on the plates, add the lettuce, guacamole, and tomatoes in separate layers. Add a dab of salsa, some queso fresco, and, if you'd like, some sour cream to the top, and then sprinkle with the cheese.

Are crunchy tacos healthier than soft?

Putting a soft taco shell into a skillet with heated oil and frying it until it becomes firm is a common method for making hard taco shells. Because of this, selecting a soft taco shell, also known as a burrito shell, will result in a reduction in the quantity of fat and calories that are derived through the use of heated oil.
