Grilled Chicken Chalupa RecipeWhat is a “Chalupa”?

In the world of Mexican cuisine, it is a tostada platter, which is a specialty of south-central Mexico.

In my world of Outdoor Cooking, it is a stack of grilled chicken, shredded and piled on top of bacon re-fried beans sandwiched between two crispy fried tortillas and topped with some of my favorite taco ingredients!

My love for this recipe goes beyond the fabulous taste of the Chalupa but also it’s ease to produce on a grill. As you will see, I am using my Camp Chef Somerset Gas Grill with the Grill Box attachment, which is perfect for grilling the chicken and making the re-fried beans.
