I love tacos and these are my favorite way to eat them. Fry bread is thick and chewy and altogether yummy.

You will need a skillet or griddle large enough to hold a 6 or 7 inch piece of fry bread.


4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup shortening
1-1/3 cups water
cooking oil for greasing the pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in the shortening with a fork or your hands.
Add the water and stir just to make a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto floured counter and knead until it is smooth. This will take maybe 5 minutes.
Cover with a towel and let the dough rest for a half hour.
Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces.
Roll or pat dough out into circles- 6-7 inch.
Put a small amount of oil on you skillet and heat to hot.
Add a piece of fry bread and cook until the dough puffs and bubbles. This will take only about a minute.
Turn over and cook for another minute.
Repeat with the rest of the fry bread.

Serve with your favorite taco toppings.
