You must try this pork chalupa recipe tonight. Or maybe tomorrow.

Since this is a crock pot recipe that needs to cook at least 6 hours, buy your ingredients the day before cooking so you can start early in the morning. By the time dinner rolls around, this dish will have turned into something so tender your taste buds will be begging for a bite.

This recipe is easy, healthier than buying it at a restaurant, and delicious.

Maybe I’m a control freak but I do like it when I know what’s in my food. And everything that goes into this dish, I can pronounce.

Make It A Healthy Chalupa Recipe

The best way to serve this dish is to place the pork into a tortilla and make a little taco or burrito, adding whatever condiments you like.  Corn tortillas are healthier than flour but use what ever you like.

You should heat up the corn tortillas before filling, by either placing one on a frying pan over medium heat, turning it over a couple of times until it’s hot.  Or.

You can also sprinkle a little water on a couple of them and place them on a plate covered with a paper towel and heat for 20 seconds.  The sprinkle of water helps make them soft.

I love to use what is called a tortilla warmer for both corn and flour tortillas. They work great for parties when you want to have several tortillas hot and ready to go for your guests.

You place a stack of tortillas into the warmer, pop it in the microwave for 1 minutes and you have hot tortillas for an hour.  Easy peasy.  I have two and I love them. Here is where you can get a Tortilla Oven similar to the one I use in the video.

This chalupa pork recipe is a perfect one to make for a party like Cinco De Mayo. It is as hands free as it gets and it practically cooks itself, except for the shredding part.

This dish can also be served right from the crock pot and is basically self serve which is great for any party.

Pork Chalupa Recipe


  • 3 to 4 lb. boneless pork butt, trimmed of fat, cut into chunks
  • 1 lb. dry black beans, (two cups), rinsed and cleaned
  • 1 four ounce can green chiles, use chopped or chop them.
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes (14oz.)
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 to 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth


This is such an easy recipe, you are going to love it.

Start this first thing in the morning before you head off to work. By the time you get home, the house will be smelling wonderful and dinner will practically be made.

To a crock pot, add the beans and green chiles. Then place the pork on top. Add the rest of the ingredients.

Sprinkle all the spices around instead of just plopping them in one big lump and stir.

Cook on low for 9 or 10 hours or on high for 6 hours.

Remove the roast and shred with two forks and then return to the crock pot for an additional 30 minutes or until hot.

Serve with tortillas, and any of the following toppings:

  • shredded lettuce
  • shredded cheese
  • sliced avocado
  • sour cream
  • hot sauce
  • Spanish rice

and anything else you desire.

Remember, “It’s Gotta Be Hot To Be Good…”
