Just Good Texas Eats

My favorite way to use the Taco Meat recipe is on top of a peice of Indian Fry Bread, sprinkled with some shredded lettuce, tomato, onion and Colby/Jack cheese. I'm in the midst of packing to move, and don't know right off hand where the recipe for the fry bread is...but I'll post it as soon as I find it. It's also good topped with refried beans and cheese....or served as a dessert, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and drizzled with honey.
Thanks for posting all the wonderful Tex style recipes! I tend to be a " pinch of this, add a handful of that" cook...and only use measurements for pastry/bread/cakes......and now my daughter is wanting real written recipes!!!!! I'll print her off a batch of YOURS!!!! ;)

Indian Fry Bread

Ok, it took me a YEAR to get around to this!

2 cups unsifted flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
2 tsp double acting baking powerd
1/2 tsp sal
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup ice water

oil for frying

combine dry ingredients, cut in shortening....pour in water, ( much like working a pie crust ) stir till dough gathers into a ball...
cover and let rise for about 2 hours at room temperature.

roll dough into balls, .....flatten and stretch each ball into a flat round....then deep fry........you can make these fairly large for a main dish serving, small for appetizer serving....
top with taco ingredients, or...while still hot, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon for a dessert. Much like a Mexican Sopapilla, only not as "puffy"
