There was a lot of hype when a popular fast food chain ditched the traditional tortilla shell for a fried chicken shell. We tried the “Naked Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell on the show… and it wasn’t too bad. But it’s no longer on the Taco Bell menu. It turns out you can create your own at home that’s arguably even healthier than the original. Cooking For Dads, Rob Barrett explains how.
