"Indian tacos, or Navajo tacos, are made using frybread instead of tortillas." They are served flat and topped with whatever concoction of ingredients you desire with a slight resemblance to a Southwestern deep dish pizza.

I spent 7 years in his neck of the woods! I love readng his stories because I can picture everything. I can even hear the odd, shy, accent of the Navajos

Hi, Guys. Thanks for the various responses to an "off topic" addition to the thread. Hilditch, thanks for the description of serving technique. Dan, I saw the Southwest only once in my life, but I think the desert is SO beautiful. I wish I could "hear" the people talk--sounds like a wonderful memory! Oh, and DS Bradley, keep reading Hillerman, he is one of my favorite authors, and that's partly because of his lyrical descriptions of landscape. Okay, Doug, 'nuff said!

Bonnie,

Thanks for starting this thread. It has motivated me to give it a try. I might even try folding some cut up apple, apricot or perhaps some blueberries in the mix before frying.

William J, I think you might end up will some serious oil popping when the juice from the fruit releases into the oil. Maybe you could just put some heated up pie filling in the Fry Bread after cooking.

I don't really know. I think maybe searching a recipe for apple fritters might be a good start. I just make the plain fry bread and only mix it up with the ingredients I put on after cooking.

That wouldn't really be fry bread. Notice that most of the recipes don't even have sugar... it. While it is common to put honey or powdered sugar on it, it really is a neutral bread that can take taco meat or mutton stew as well.
