  • 1 loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound hot bulk pork sausage
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Chopped tomato
  • Finely chopped onion
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Taco sauce


  1. Allow dough to rise according to package directions. Meanwhile, for filling, cook beef and sausage in a skillet over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning, beans and water. Simmer 15-20 minutes or until the water is almost evaporated; set aside.
  2. After dough rises, punch down. Divide dough into 12 equal balls. Using a small amount of flour, roll each ball into an 6-in. circle (dough will be thin).
  3. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat 1-in. oil to 350°. Gently place 1 dough circle into oil. Fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes, turning once. Drain tortillas on paper towels; keep warm. Top each tortilla with meat mixture, tomato, onion, lettuce, cheese and taco sauce.
