"A yummy twist to an old favorite. The frybread makes the difference. It's a popular request at my house. I do up everything but the frybread in advance, and just heat up before serving. Leftover frybread can be used as dessert - coat it with cinnamon and sugar, and drizzle with honey."

  1. Combine beans and 2 tablespoons of picante sauce in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until heated through. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef with taco seasoning mix according to seasoning mix package directions. Cover, and keep warm while you prepare the fry bread.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, and mix until the dough comes together. Add more flour if necessary to be able to handle the dough. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, at least 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large, deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Break off 3/4 cup sized pieces of dough, and shape into round discs 1/4 inch in thickness, making a thinner depressed area in the center. Fry breads in the hot oil until golden on both sides, turning only once. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Top fry bread with beans, ground beef, lettuce and cheese. Spoon picante sauce over. You can also top with other of your favorite taco toppings, such as onion, sour cream or guacamole.

Oh what an ordeal to make...but boy were they worth it. I think I must have done something wrong in the frying process (I've never really fried anything before). I used a big sauce pot, filled i...

HELPFUL TIPS: This makes 3 (using the suggested 3/4C dough) & I can't imagine ANY adult eating more than 1 since they take up the entire plate (as my pic shows). It's necessary to make this as P...

AMAZING!!! I was so nervous about making this, as I've never made any sort of bread or tortilla, and I have only fried like 3 things in my entire life. Very easy and so delicious. I made the ent...

You really do have to be certain the oil is hot enough before dropping in the flattened dough, or it won't cook through before turning golden brown; once you drop it in, though, the fry bread is...

I only made the fry bread and it was easy and delicious. I will be making this again except I will double the recipe.Thanks Robyn for a recipe I will enjoy for years to come.

This is one of my favorites!!! I have never tried this meat mixture, but the bread is fantastic, think a 100% better homeade version of the taco bell chulupa, soft yet crunchy and rich. normaly ...
