Navajo Tacos

This is fry bread and refried beans topped with salsa and yogurt and maybe cheese if we're lucky that day.

For the beans, dump about 3 cups of cooked beans into the blender along with some chopped onion, garlic, salt and cayenne. I like cumin too, but one son doesn't. You can add some olive oil too, if you like. Blend that up, adding water till it's the consistency you like. Heat before serving if you like.

For the bread, combine 4 cups of flour (whole wheat is the only choice around here), 2 tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp salt. Add about two cups of warm water till you have a soft, kneadable dough. Divide the dough into eight pieces on a lightly floured surface. Roll each out and fry them. You're supposed to deep-fry them, but I just shallow fry them in about an inch of oil. Heat the oil over medium to medium-high heat and fry on each side till golden. Drain on paper towels.
