(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and these Crockpot Chalupas from Pinch of Yum definitely sound amazing.)

I was already drooling over the photo of these Crockpot Chalupas from Pinch of Yum, and then I read the introduction where Lindsay says, "You just can’t argue with spicy, flavorful, tender shredded pork and pinto bean filling that cooks itself for you all day while you’re at work."  I certainly wouldn't argue with that, no way.  And serving the mixture on toasted tortillas with cheese makes it even better.  This recipe has a lot of comments from people who have enjoyed it; sounds like a winner!
