Elementary School Chalupa

Mike13241 | Dec 3, 200805:32 PM

Ok so bear with me on this, but did anyone else have a "chalupa" on their elementary school cafeteria menu? Basically it was a shallow oblong tortilla shell boat with a thin layer of cheddar cheese and ground beef on the bottom. It then usually had a haphazard spray of shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes on top.

I'm sure that if you didn't eat it as a kid you'd probably hate it if you ate it now, but my god, those things were insanely satisfying.

I always looked forward to chalupa day and can't help but wonder if there is something similar out there where I can get my childhood fix. Anyone know of such a thing anywhere in LA? I know I could probably just make the thing easy but please indulge me.
