Indian Taco Meat Sauce
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 16 ounce can refried beans
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning or chili seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

On a lightly floured surface, roll out each dough ball into a 6-inch circle.
In a heavy skillet, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil over medium-high heat to 365 degree F. Fry dough circles, 1 or 2 at a time, in hot oil about 1 minute or until bread circles are golden brown, turning once. Remove with tongs and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining circles.
To serve, top with Indian Taco Meat Sauce or Cinnamon-Sugar Topping. Serve immediately. Serves 12.
Indian Taco Meat Sauce
In a large skillet, cook ground beef until meat is brown. Drain off fat. Stir in refried beans, tomato juice, water, chopped onion, taco seasoning, and chili powder. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until desired consistency.
Spoon over warm fry bread. If you like, top with dairy sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomato.
Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
In a small bowl, combine sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle over warm fry bread.
