2 1/2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
warm water, enough to make a soft dough
Shortening, for deep fat frying
2 cans refried beans
1 pound hamburger
2 large tomatoes - diced
(note: may substitute chili con carne for refried beans and hamburger)
- Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and water together and knead the resulting dough 10 minutes (while the shortening is heating).
- Handpat the dough into thin, flat circles the size of a pancake; keep submerged in deep hot grease until lightly golden.
- Brown the hamburger, then mix with the refried beans and warm the mixture.
- Place a large spoonful or so of the refried beans mixture on each of the fry bread. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomato.
