Taco Bell Corp. is a California-based fast service restaurant chain that specializes in Mexican style fast food. Taco Bell--with 1995 sales in the United States of $3.5 billion dollars--held the largest share of the Mexican-style restaurant market in the United States. In mid-1997 the fast food chain was owned by the giant PepsiCo empire and was expected to soon become part of the restaurant holding company TRICON Global Restaurants, Inc., a far cry from its modest beginnings as a hot dog stand.

Taco Bell Beef Chalupa Supreme



INGREDIENTS

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



DIRECTIONS

1. Mix dried onion with water in a small bowl and let sit for five minutes.

2. Combine ground beef, flour, chili powder, paprika and salt. Add

onions and water then mix. In a skillet, cook beef mixture. Stir

often while cooking to prevent large chunks from forming; it should be like a paste.

3. Remove from heat but keep warm.

4. In a deep-fryer, or a skillet, deep fry the bread for 30 seconds. Let

drain on paper towels.

5. Make Chalupas starting with meat, then sour cream, lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes in that order. Top with hot sauce or salsa, to taste.

Serves 4-6
