Bean and Beef Shaloupias

Recipe by  

"Pinto beans slow cooked in beef bouillon, topped with ground beef and Mexican-style cheeses create the centerpiece for these layered corn tortilla treats. Very high in protein and fiber. I prepare the beans before I leave for work, so they will be tender by dinner time. Pick your favorite garnishes and toppings, like salsa, tomatoes and sour cream."

These were great! We substituted ground turkey sausage once and just ground turkey as well and both work as a great substitute for beef. DO NOT USE CORN TORTILLAS. The fall apart and are very grainy, flour works much better. For clarification, do not cook the beans as suggested on the bean package, just wash them that way. For a faster way you can substitute pre-cooked can beans. I would simmer them for 1/2 - 1 hr at minimum.

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe.Most of the time involved was prep work.This would be great for a superbowl party.We recomend this to everyone,even if you're not into"mexican style" food.

What is the reason for putting"cooked" beans in a slow cooker??? Soak beans till they start swelling a little and throw water away, then cook them in chicken or beef bouillon, add your favorite herbs.(1 small bay leaf and 1 thick peppercorn, add fried chorizo at the very end.

The recipe was very good and the family really liked it. Nice taste and all the ingredients went well together. The only problem was the time it took. It really was too long and took too much effort for the ending result.

This recipe was amazing! My family loves tacos, and the addition of these slow-cooked pinto beans made the whole meal change. Be sure to include all of the extras (sour cream, lettuce, tomato, etc.) to get the best flavor. Yum!

We liked this meal very much. I added some diced up tomato to the hamburger at the very end of browning it. I would serve it next time with sour cream and feta cheese (or Mexican cheese).

Very good, but I personally found the beans to be very bland prepared this way. I added some reserved bacon drippings to the slow cooker to liven them up a little. Next time I make it I will use refried beans.
