How to make it
- Stir flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add milk while stirring with a fork, keep stirring to get the mixture to come together as much as possible. Add just enough water, about 1/4 cup or so, to get the dough to come together..if more is needed, add a small amount at a time until dough forms. Cover the bowl with a dish towel and let sit for 30-35 minutes.
- After dough has rested, heat approximately 1-2 inches of oil in a cast iron skillet (if you have one) over medium/high heat. Separate the dough into 6 pieces, roll each into a ball (at this point, I have a small bowl of flour to dust my hands with, it makes it easier to handle the dough, it can tend to be a bit sticky), press into a circle with your fingers, place on a flat surface and begin pressing in the center and work your way out streatching as you go.(I also pat the circles with the palms of my hands to help flatten, what ever works best for you)
- When the circle is about 5-6 or so inches (remember they do puff up!), carefully place in the hot oil. Fry on one side until golden brown, about a minute, carefully turn with tongs and fry other side for about 30 seconds. Place on paper towels to drain. Repeat until done.
- Top frybread with your favorite taco toppings, seasoned meat and/or beans, cheese, green onions, lettuce, cilantro, salsa..whatever you like!

HOLY 'FILLING' BATMAN! Marie, these were just delish! Your instructions are bang on. I used just a dribble more water in the dough mixture. I used both chopped onion and chopped green onion. The frybread was easy to do and fun. My Mom watched the who...more
