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.
