Navajo Tacos/Mexican Haystacks

These have long been favorites of mine and I think I've finally perfected the recipe.  These are great for a fun family dinner or even for entertaining a larger party.  

{What you need}
scones/fry bread 
{this recipe is great, or I just buy the frozen roll/scone 
dough for convenience and it's awesome)
oil for deep frying 
1 pound ground beef
8 oz cream cheese
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can refried beans

{topping ideas}
shredded lettuce
grated cheddar cheese
sliced avocado
diced tomatoes
diced onion
diced olives
sour cream

In a large skillet cook meat with the taco seasoning and the amount of water according to the taco seasoning packet.  Drain juices and add beans and cream cheese.  Heat through and stir until evening incorporated. 

In a medium sauce pan heat oil to 375 degrees.  Deep fry scones according to package directions and drain on a paper-towel lined plate.  Top with meat mixture and toppings of choice.  Serves great with this spanish rice!
