2 1⁄2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
1 cup milk
oil (for deep frying)

1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1⁄2 cup water
oil, for deep-frying
shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese
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.
Add onions and water.
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.
