Last week I shared with you our adventure to a Citizen Pottowatomie Nation Pow Wow and my recipe for Sourdough Indian Fry Bread. Today, I’m sharing a Native American traditional Indian Fry Bread Taco recipe. These tacos are a great way to change up the ol’ “Taco Tuesday”. Make extra so that you can have dessert too. The fry bread is wonderful drizzled with honey or sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar!
You can make these tacos with various taco fillings. This recipe is for a traditional taco, but I have made them using leftover ingredients. A while back I shredded some my leftover Smoked Chicken Leg Quarters with sautéed poblano peppers and onions. They were awesome! Give them a try, they’re delish!
