I bet you're wondering how in the world to pronounce that, aren't you? ShahLOOpeez. There you go. don't know what shalupies are? Well, I'll tell you, but you have to promise you'll still think I'm sane. My husband does not.
First, you take your basic taco salad...
Looks good, huh?
Then, you add the Smith family secret ingredient. All of my cousins do this. My Mimmie did this. I didn't know you didn't do this in other homes. It's just what we did. You add...
English peas. The big ones, not the little baby ones. And you don't warm them. You open the can, drain them, plop them in a bowl, and serve them on the table with the cheese and salsa.
Have I lost you yet? Well, how about now?
And that, my uninitiated bloggy friends, is how you eat Shalupies.
Okay, I bet your family has a weird way to eat something. Please tell me that my family wasn't crazy. Sound Man, you have no say so.
