TNT indian fry bread used for Taco dinner

This is a very good easy dinner to make with Indian fry bread:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cups HOT water
mix the flour and baking powder and salt with the hot water, to make a soft dough.. cover and let it stand for at least 1 hour ( its not going to rise or anything, but for some reason, it just makes the fry bread turn out good)

( while that is rising before the time is over.. cook up some hamburger, about a pound, add some taco sauce, the jar kind is best, I use old el paso, mild, keep it warm till the bread is done being fried)

after the wait time.. divide the dough in 4 pieces, roll on a lightly floured surface in about a 4 inch circle. In an electric skillet ( one of those small ones are great, can do it on the stove BUT be careful of the oil and the burner) heat about 1 inch of oil to 350 degrees. fry bread cirlces in hot oil for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side or until golden. drain on paper towels.

then on top of the bread.. put some of the cooked up hamburger, some cheese, lettuce, onions, put some salsa on it.. then some plops of sour cream.. and some olives and tomatoes on top of that
Yummy.. you got to try it

ohhh ya... AND if you make MORE of those fry breads.. put some cinnamon sugar on top after cooking.. they taste like those elephant ears you get at the fair!

ohhh man.. I just made myself hungry!!

If you want to make it more "authentic" mix some beans with your ground beef (can use ground turkey too). For those that like beans with their chili, this is a good use for it.

THANKS FOR POSTING THIS! I made indian tacos for the kids and fiance one day, and they we SO impressed! They were better than Grandma's! And they went bragging to Grandma, and Grandma admitted after hearing I searched for hours on the net for the perfect recipes that she used a mix!
Anyways, I went to look for my recipe to see if it was similar to yours and CANT FIND IT!!!! Copying and pasting! The ones I made were kinda heavy- do these puff up?

Thanks! I am sure the kids will love the sweet version, too! I am having visions of a dollop of ice cream on top too... and caramel or chocolate syrup... and nuts....

If you have the time, use a yeast dough. Even more tasty.

It's pretty much exactly what it's called. fried bread dough. Pat it thin, fry it in hot oil.

You can make it with quick bread dough or a yeast dough. Most often the dough has a powdered milk or is made with milk. I like Paul Prudhomme's addition of powdered coffee creamer. Sounds odd, but work's quite well. I also usually use buttermilk rather than milk. I like the tang and tenderness it provides.

Usually topped with a stew of lamb as the Navajo were shepherds. And beans corn and squash, those being the historic trinity of foods of the primitive southwest. This creates the "Navajo taco". Often garnished with cheese, sourcream and lettuce to give it the "taco" effect.
