Chalupa is the Spanish word for "boat." It describes the taco shells that hold the savory pork-and-bean mixture. You can also serve the mixture over cornbread or rolled up burrito style in flour tortillas.

- 1 (3-1/2-pound) boneless pork loin roast
- 2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chilies
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 (32-ounce) container chicken broth
- 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies with lime juice and cilantro
- 8 taco salad shells
- 1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
What to Do
Rinse and sort beans according to package directions; place in a 6-quart slow cooker. Add roast and next 6 ingredients. Pour chicken broth over roast.
Cover and cook on HIGH setting 8 hours. Pull roast into large pieces with 2 forks, stir in diced tomatoes. Heat for additional 10 minutes.
