Navajo Taco

Navajo Taco

If you have RV'd across New Mexico,  chances are that you have seen or stopped by a roadside stand that is cooking up Indian Fry Bread. It's a delicious treat that can be eaten as a dessert or a main course depending what you put on top of it.

 Navajo Taco

Indian Fry Bread is similar to sopapillas but tend to be larger and flatter - a perfect vessel for an Indian Taco! Just as with any taco, you can add whatever you wish to it. The most common way is with seasoned ground beef, pinto beans, cheese, lettuce and tomato.

To have an Indian Taco, you must first make the Fry Bread!

Indian Fry Bread


4 cups of flour

1 tbs. baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 tbs. powdered milk

1 ½ cups warm water

1 cup shortening

Extra flour to flour your hands


Put flour in bowl, add baking powder, salt and powdered milk. Mix.

Mix in warm water to form dough.

Cover hands in flour.

Knead dough by hand until soft but not sticky. Cover with a cloth and let stand for 15 minutes.

Shape dough into balls about 2 inches across then flatten by patting and stretching the dough.

Melt shortening about an inch deep in frying pan. When hot put dough in pan. Fry one side till golden brown, then flip and fry the other side. Drain well on paper towels.

Now, all you have to do is top the fry bread with your choice of meat, cheese, beans and other toppings you might like. Enjoy!
