Indian Tacos

2 c flour

1 T baking powder

dash salt

1 c buttermilk

Combine flour, baking powder & salt in bowl. Add buttermilk til mixture forms a light dough. Flatten several clumps of this dough on floured surface. I usually make 3 flattened. Heat about 1/2 inch vegetable oil in skillet. Carefully set each flattened clump of dough into oil. One at a time. Let cook on each side til golden brown. Will cook fairly quickly. With tongs, remove to a paper toweled plate then start another one cooking.

When finished, start to layer your Indian Taco beginning with the meat, then beans, etc.

Oh yeah.......

The Recipe Box

Thaw out 1 pound of Taco Seasoned meat (I use Turkey)Put about 1/2 bag (small) dried pinto beans on to cook til tender...
I am making homemade Indian Tacos. Basically it's a fry bread with any type of topping you like to eat. Tomatoes, cheese, onions, jalapenos, sour cream, etc. Yum!
