These are just like the Indian Taco's we used to buy at the county fair from from the local tribe....one of the only reasons I went to the fair!Thank you for posting a great recipe.The frybread is good sprinkled with cinnamon sugar,or drizzled with honey....Yum!
I have just tried my first Inidian Fry Bread tacos and it was great! Can a lower fat version be made of it...and if so does it taste as good.
Firstly, I am from Australia. I love this fry bread. Yes it may not be authentic, but neither is the food we have in Chinese & Indian restaurants. :-)
