Indian tacos

OK time for some fun with re-fried beans. Take one pound ground beef, brown and drain, mix in your favorite taco seasoning. Then take one batch of re-fried beans and mix that into the beef mix. Next make the Navajo fry bread with the following recipe.

* 3 cups all-purpose flour
 * 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 cups warm water
* Oil, for frying
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. 
Add warm water till dough starts to ball up.
Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, be careful not to overwork.
Place in bowl and refrigerate 30-60 minutes.
heat oil to 350 degrees.
Roll baseball sized pieces out till they are about 1/4 inch thick, place in oil and cook till golden brown then flip and cook other side till it is golden brown total time is about 3 minutes depending on thickness of dough and temp of oil.

Top fry bread with warm meat and bean mix and lettuce and tomato.
This is a great comfort food and I love when I can make something from scratch for the family.
