Navajo Tacos

Fry Bread-
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 cups oil (for frying)
1lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes (diced)
Sour cream

In a large skillet cook ground beef with taco seasoning according to the package directions. Cover and keep warm. To make fry bread – in a bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and mix until the dough comes together and forms a ball. On floured surface kneed the dough until its smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes. Heat oil in a deep skillet (oil should be at least 1 ½” deep) to 365 degrees. Break off ¾ cup sized pieces of the dough and shape into round discs that are about ¼” in thickness. Make a thinner depressed area in the center. Fry the bread (1 piece at a time) in the hot oil until golden brown on both sides. Turn only once. Drain on paper towels. Top fry bread with toppings. (Makes 4 Servings)

* These are AMAZING! They have such a great texture. 1 recipe of the fry bread makes 4 fry breads. I think it's better to make them a little bit thicker so they are tender in the middle.
*The fry bread is awesome for dessert also with some butter and honey, powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar. They are just a basic scone so they can go sweet or savory.
