Navajo Fry Bread Tacos

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was Native American. While these tacos were beyond amazing, I think I could have stayed with one :). A** Blood is a homemade chili powder made with ghost chilis.

Ingredients

Indian Fry Bread
3 Cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 Cups Milk
Water , as needed
Lard , for frying
Taco Toppings
1 lb Ground Beef
1/2 Yellow Onion , diced
Clove 3 Garlic , minced  
Taco Seasoning , see below
1 15 oz Refried Beans Cans
Tomatoes , diced
Cheddar Cheese
Salsa
Lettuce , chopped
Taco Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/4 teaspoon A** Blood
1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Salt
15 Cranks Fresh Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Corn Starch
1/4 Cup Water

Steps

  1. First make the Indian Fry Bread. Stir together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. Stir with a fork as you drizzle in the milk and keep stirring so it stays together.
  3. Add just enough water to get the dough to come together. I used about 1/2 a cup.
  4. Cover the dough and let it sit for 45 minutes
  5. Heat about 2 inches of lard in a skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, grab some dough and either press it out with your fingers or roll it out on a clean surface.
  6. Carefully drape the dough into the hot lard and cook until golden brown (45 seconds to 1 minute), using tongs, flip the bread and cook an additional 30 – 45 seconds.
  7. Remove the bread to paper towels to drain and repeat for the rest of the dough.
  8. Heat up the refried beans.
  9. Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain.
  10. To make the taco seasoning, stir together the chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, A** Blood, oregano, salt, black pepper, and corn starch.
  11. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, taco seasoning (either package or homemade), and 1/4 Cup water. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes.
  12. Put all of the toppings on the fry bread. Serve hot.

The addition of A** Blood gave the meat a definite kick so some people may want to leave it out.
