Ingredients

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!

    Oh my gosh, I am so stuffed! I've never had fry bread before and I've always wanted to try it. Its really delicious! I made 1/2 of the recipe and it took about 1/4 cup of water to get the dough to my liking. I used "pinto beans, green pepper, onion and garlic in zesty sauce" instead of meat. Mine really puffed up so I ate my taco with a fork. I added a couple of pictures and put some more in the IMI thread below. 7/13/14

    I loved this Marie! The fry bread dough needed close to 1/2 cup extra water to get to how I wanted it. My ground beef wieghed less than a pound so I threw in a can of white beans to stretch the meat a little...added my review in the IMI --------> Frybread Tacos

    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 whole process. She and I only could eat one but Jim actually managed a second! :) They are so filling!!!!!!! Jim dislikes hard tacos so this was a big hit with him and Mom wants me to tell you that she definitely gives it 'the thumbs up'. Thanks so much for sharing this. :)

    Marie...is it okay to make the frybread up ahead of time by a bit or is it best just, just before serving time so they're still warm?
