1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/2 cup water
Flat bread (pita will work)
Oil for deep−frying
Sour Cream
Shredded lettuce
Shredded Cheddar/Jack cheese
Diced Tomatoes

Mix dried onion with water in a small bowl and let stand for
five minutes. Combine ground beef, flour, chili powder,
paprika, and salt. Mix well. Add onions and water. Mix again.
In a skillet, cook beef mixture until browned. Stir often
while cooking so no large chunks form; it should be more like
a paste. Remove from heat and keep warm.
In a deep−fryer (or you can use a skillet) deep fry the
bread for 30 seconds. Let drain on absorbent towels.
Build Chalupas starting with meat, then sour cream, lettuce
cheese, and tomatoes in that order. Top with hot sauce or
salsa if desired.
