Navajo Taco Fry Bread

Deletedprofile C


Fry bread is just that: a bread that is fried. Use it to make Navajo Tacos (with pinto beans, meat, cheese, salsa) or bacon/eggs/cheese/salsa for breakfast.

6 c
all purpose flour
3 Tbsp
baking powder
3 c
1 tsp
canola oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the water and stir to make a stiff, sticky dough. Let set for about 30 minutes.
Use a large knife to cut off pieces that will make about a 6-inch circle. This isn't a "rule," as you can make any size manageable or for your specific use.

Heat your oil to frying temp. If needed, you can heat your oven so that the fried pieces can be kept warm while you work on the rest of the dough.
To fry the bread, carefully slide the dough into the oil. Watch to ensure they don't get too dark. Use tongs to flip each piece and cook the other side. Drain on paper towels. Seal uneaten bread and store in the fridge. They can be reheated in a microwave.
