Just like everyone else I love comfort food. Although, it's not always good for you. Which is the case for this recipe. Normally we don't eat any fried food but we are today.
Pinto Beans (brown beans) cooked
1 pound ground chuck or sirloin (cook and drain fat)
Taco seasoning or season meat yourself
(garlic, salt, pepper, onion etc.)
3 C. flour grated cheese
1 T. baking powder chopped tomatoes
1 t. salt onion, olives
2 t. sugar green chiles
salsa and sour cream
1 T. powdered milk
1 T. margarine
1 1/2 C. Warm water
The beans are cooked. The ground meat cooked, seasoned and fat drained.
For the Frybread:
Mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and powdered milk. Add margarine and mix.
Add enough warm water to make a soft dough. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a heavy skillet, heat 3/4 -inch of oil to 375 degrees F.
Pat or roll out dough into about 6 (1/4 to 3/8-inch thick) rounds. Slide into hot oil
Puncture once or twice. Fry until golden brown. Flip the dough over and fry other
side to golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Spoon some beans and meat onto hot bread and top with your choice of accompaniments
My camera won't let me change the date on any of the photos I've taken. But I did make this pot of beans today. YUM!!
This is what the frybread looks like after frying. Be sure to drain them on a few paper towels.
I promise you that the frybread is under the all that stuff. I did add salsa after taking this picture.
Have you ever eaten or made indian frybread?
