  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, combine yogurt and flour until a thick dough forms. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and divide into 6 equal pieces (weighing approx. 3.4 ounces each). Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough into a circle, approximately 6-inches in diameter.
  • Place flattened dough in hot oil and cook until lightly golden brown on each side. Use tongs to remove fried dough from the oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Add ground beef and diced onion to a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook, breaking up, until browned and onion is tender. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Divide beef evenly (2.2 ounces each) between pieces of fry bread and top with your favorite toppings (not included in nutritional information).
