Are tacos too boring for you? Get ready to bite into a super flaky crust and be met with some amazing flavors. The first chalupa will be an experiment to make, but you get to be a pro pretty quickly. Do not use vegetable oil as the chalupa will soak up the taste. Stick to peanut oil.
Fish of your choice
Dat’l Hook Ya Blackened seasoning
Dat’l Hook Ya sauce
Cheese of your choice
2 1/4 cup Bread Flour
1 cup Whole milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp Baking powder
2 1/4 tbsp Shortening
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Add shortening and mix until its dissipated evenly. Add milk and mix. Once its an even consistency, remove from bowl and knead for 2-3min until dough is smooth. Make it into a log appearance about 8-9 inches long. Cut the log in half length wise. Now cut each half into 4 segments. Next cut each segment in half and you will have 16 even sized pieces of dough. Roll each one as flat as you can, it will roughly be a 5-6 inch circle. I know it looks too thin, don’t worry it will puff up nice! Heat peanut oil in a fryer to 375. Place a large spatula half way onto the dough and fold the other half onto it. Bring to oil and fry half in the oil holding the spatula in place until the dough is golden brown. Do not remove spatula while frying as both sides will stick together. Flip to cook the other side the same. Set aside.
Liberally coat fish in blackened seasoning. In a hot pan add a lot of butter and then add fish. Cook till each side has a nice texture and color. Chop up into larger pieces. Load up the chalupa with all the fixings and drizzle with Dat’l Hook Ya sauce and enjoy such an amazing meal!
