Dinner last night was wonderful Taco Gordito's

Thank you Colleen Sowa for this recipe for fry bread. we use it often to nights dinner was Taco filling in these babies. Sorry my Picture phone is down at the moment.

3 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
6 Tbsp margarine
1 c milk (or water)
2 inches vegetable oil

1. Combine flour, salt, baking powder and shortening; mix until shortening is blended. Add water; mix well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board; knead until smooth, about 2 minutes. Roll dough into a ball; place into a plastic bag and let sit for 10 minutes. Separate into 10 balls and roll out each ball of dough to make 10 (4-inch to 6-inch) flat, thin rounds.
2. In a cast iron skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Place rounds in oil one at a time; cook each side 18 to 35 seconds or until light golden brown. Remove rounds from skillet with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Fill with prepared fillings as desired or eat as a bread with soups and stews.

The Taco filling we used

1 1/2 pounds hamburger
1 medium onion diced
1 pack taco bell brand taco seasoning or equivalent
added condiments for the Gordita's like sour cream, shredded cheeses and lettuce, taco sauces, sliced avocado.

Brown hamburger and onion together adding the taco seasoning package and simmer with a little water until the water has been cooked out. serve over gorditas with condiments
