Chalupa (Grandma from Hawaii)

We usually triple this recipe and freeze the leftovers to make minute meals later. It is by far one of our favorite family meals.


2 cups pinto beans, dry
3 pounds pork roast
7 cups water
1/2 cup onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 4 oz can green chilis

Combine ingredients in pot, crockpot of counter roaster.
Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat.  Simmer, covered for 5 hours or until roast falls apart.
Uncover and cook 1/2 hour more to thicken.
Serve with tortillas, rice, tacos, tortilla chips, shredded lettuce, avocados, onions, grated cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, salsa or any other Mexican condiment.

Notes: Freezes well.
