Navajo Tacos

Start to Finish: 20 minutes

Fry Bread:
2-1/2 cups flour
1 Tbsp powdered milk
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup very warm water


Refried beans
Ground beef (cooked)
Sour cream
Shredded cheese
Green onions

1. Mix flour, powdered milk,baking powder, and salt together. Cut in shortening. Gradually add 3/4 cup water and stir with a fork until dough clings together. Put dough on lightly floured board. Knead until smooth, 2-3 minutes. Shape each portion of dough into a ball then pat out on a floured board into a 6-7 inch round. In a large pan heat 3/4 inch salad oil to 375 degrees F (or deep fry at 375 degrees F). Only turning once, cook each round of dough until puffy and golden brown. 
2. Top with your choice of toppings and serve.

Notes: This is really good. We use it as an alternative to tacos occasionally and it is a quick, easy, and delicious meal to make when company comes over.

Variations: You can pick and choose your own toppings.
