Indian tacos are a staple of pot lucks in my tribe (yep, I have Chippewa in me. My mother's maiden name was Ojibwa). Almost every social gathering involves fry bread, and usually indian tacos. The toppings might change, but it's still great stuff.

My eldest son could hardly boil water as a teen. And yet, I showed him how to make fry bread one time. After that, he developed a knack for it and became the fry-bread master of the house. His was btter than mine. I never did figure out what he did different.

He still calls me for most cooking chores though. He's getting better and is still young.

Goodweed, my oldest daughter used to not be able to boil water and yet she caught the knack of fry bread right off at a young age too. No matter what tribe you might be (for me Cherokee and Oglala Lakota), the recipes are all pretty much the same with a few variations. Both daughters like it with honey, sugar (different kinds, including brown sugar broiled on the top) and with the taco works. If I happen to have made too much, my dogs and burros love them!!

Thanks to you all!
A little cross-cultural confusion there, on my part. Whenever I see the word "Indian", I automatically think of the inhabitants of the Indian sub-continent... there I was wondering how "pooris" ( a deep-fried bread from the Indian cusine) got on the site...

This sounds delicious. At a barbecue festival this weekend we had fried flour tortillas sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Very tasty.

Just a note--fry bread is a relatively new addition to southwest Indian cuisine. They first started eating it when the US government began handing out rations on the reservation--flour and lard. Maybe 150 years ago?

I like it with a layer of refried beans, cooked ground beef, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatos, sour cream, taco sauce or salsa.
