Caryn's Indian Tacos


4 cups Shawnee Mills Self Rising Flour
2 cups whole milk
pinto or Ranch style beans
2 pounds ground beef, browned
1 package taco seasoning
shredded iceberg lettuce
chopped tomatoes
red onions, chopped
cheddar cheese, shredded
sour cream
canola oil for frying


Heat a large cast iron pot with canola or vegetable oil till hot. In a large bowl, mix together the self rising flour and whole milk. Mix just till it comes together. It will be sticky. Do not over mix! Spoon out a baseball sized ball and place on a well floured board. Knead just till not too sticky. Flatten with your hands till it is about 4 inches wide and about 3/4 inch thick. Do not over work...It will make for tough bread. Place 1 round in the hot oil. It will bubble and come to the top. Allow to fry till golden brown and then flip with tongs. Once brown on both sided place on a paper towel lined cookie sheet. Continue till all breads are fried.

To serve:

Top fry bread with Ranch style beans, ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, cheese, salsa and sour cream.
