Preparation

Step 1

To make Indian Fry Bread Mix dry ingredients together.

Cut in shortening; then add milk.

Shape dough into a long cylinder; cut into 8 equal parts.

Flour hands, then work the pieces into 6" tortillas.

Fry in oil until golden brown.

To Make filling Mix dried onion with water in a small bowl and let stand for five minutes.

Combine ground beef, flour, chili powder, paprika, and salt.

Mix well.

Add onions and water.

Mix again.

In a skillet, cook beef mixture until browned.

Stir often while cooking so no large chunks form; it should be more like a paste.

Remove from heat and keep warm.

Build Chalupas starting with meat, then sour cream, lettuce cheese, and tomatoes in that order.

Top with hot sauce or salsa if desired.
