Charupas are tostada platters in Mexican cuisine. It is a

specialty of south-central Mexico, such as the states of Puebla,

Guerrero and Oaxaca. It is made by pressing a thin layer of masa

dough around the outside of a small mold and deep frying to produce

a crisp shallow corn cup. It is filled with various ingredients

such as shredded chicken, pork, chopped onion, chipotle pepper, red

salsa, and green salsa. An Americanized form is sold in Taco Bell

restaurants. This version, made with deep-fried wheat flatbread,

filled with ground meat and topped with cheese, lettuce, sour cream

and salsa resembles American tacos. Edgar Dsouza Goa
