Ground Turkey or Beef Filling
Start by browning the ground turkey or beef in a large non-stick skillet. Break up the ground meat with a wooden spoon and cook evenly. As your meat begins to be cooked through, add the package of taco seasoning, with the quantity of water called for in the recipe.
While your meat is cooking, start cooking the fry bread. Next chop the lettuce, grate the cheese and chop the tomatoes. Once all of your ingredients are cooked and prepped, serve everything together. Each person can assemble their own tacos to suit their liking.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Next add warm water until the dough is elastic, approximately 1 1/2 cups. Knead the dough until it is soft, then allow the dough to rise for 10 to 20 minutes.
Before beginning to cook the fry bread heat up the cooking oil until sizzling hot for frying. To cook the fry bread, tear off a small piece of the dough and flatten until the dough is thin, and poke a hole through the middle. Place the piece of dough into the hot oil, being careful not to splatter or touch the oil. Cook the fry bread until brown on both sides. remove the bread from the oil, once brown, and thoroughly drain off the fry bread on paper towels.
