    A flat taco, this frybread recipe is really good. It's not your typical taco!

      Delicious,Yummy these are so good. DH loved them. I was so glad to find a recipe for these tacos. When we lived in Clearlake, Ca the Pomo Indians held a Pow Wow at the park and made and sold these Tacos. I did use shedderd beef as I had some left over Roast. I also cut the recipe in half. The fry bread is good by its self or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, kids love it. Thanks Leta for a great recipe. It is sure a KEEPER.

      Wow! These were wonderful, and pretty easy to make. I found that 5 cups of flour was good with a very well floured surface for rolling out the dough. I followed the directions as noted and we topped them with salsa, cheese, and sour cream. My family liked these more than the ones we got from a Navajo event at the Grand Canyon last month! Great recipe!
