Who doesn't like tacos? This is just a little different, and I hope you will like it! This is such a great recipe, one that kids love.You can use the leftoversLOL! for dessert.Just coat it with cinnamon and sugar, then drizzle it with honey. You can make all of the toppings ahead of time, then just do the frybread just before serving.

Wow, I was so ecstatic to see this recipe, I've been looking for one a long time after I tasted a Jamaican friend's. It turned out delicious, I ended up just eating them as bread along with my meal. They took less time than I expected (I didn't even knead it 5 minutes, bad girl). The texture is chewy, but not heavy. As Fluffster suggested, they're best hot.
