Indian Taco Recipe

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon double-acting baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 pound ground meat (beef, lamb, venison or pork)
  • 1 cup Indian tomato sauce
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce or cabbage, shredded
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 can green chilies, diced, drained (3 oz can)
  • 1 cup sour cream (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt; stir in warm water; knead the mixture on a floured surface until it forms a soft but not sticky dough. Let the dough stand, covered with a kitchen towel, for 15 minutes.

Pull off egg-size pieces of the dough and pat and stretch them into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Poke a hole with a finger through the center of each round so that the breads will

fry evenly.

For Fry Bread, in a large heavy skillet heat the shortening over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking. Fry the rounds, 1 at a time, for 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, and transfer the breads as they are fried to paper towels to drain.

For Indian Taco filling, in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, brown ground meat, tomato sauce and onions until cooked; remove from heat. Place Fry Bread, cupped side up, on separate plates. Layer ground meat, lettuce, tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, and cilanto and green chilies onto top of each Fry Bread. Top with sour cream, if desired, and either roll up or serve open-faced with a fork.
