2 cups red or green chile sauce
1 1/2 cups cooked ground beef 
1 medium onion, chopped      
1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce (optional)
Tomato wedges (optional)
Cut a slit along one side of each sopaipilla with a sharp knife.

Sopaipillas De Levadura Quimica
Yield: 4 dozen medium sopaipillas

4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons shortening
1 1/2 cups warm water
Shortening or oil

Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and cut in
shortening. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add water to
dry ingredients and work into dough. Knead dough until smooth,
cover, and set aside for 20 minutes. Heat 2 inches of shortening
or oil in a heavy pan at medium-high heat. Roll dough to a 1/8-inch
thickness on a lightly floured board. Cut dough into 4-inch squares
and fry until golden on both sides, turning once. (If shortening
is sufficiently hot, the sopaipillas will puff and become hollow
shortly after being placed in the shortening.) Drain sopaipillas
on absorbent towels.
