We head to the US for the county fair every summer, and this is one of reasons why. The kids tell me that our house smells like the fair when we make these.

- In the meantime, brown the ground beef, drain, add taco mix and 1/4 cup water.
- Heat about 2" cooking oil in skillet or frying pan.

Our church youth group sells these all the time for fundraisers and they are always a hit! One hint is to poke a small hole (with your finger) in the center of the flattened dough before frying it. It helps it to fry completely and not get a big bubble in the middle. We also use plenty of onions on ours as well as garlic in the meat too. Thanks, Chef Dee for posting this recipe!
Awesome!!! I used some refried beans too!
