Navajo Fry Bread

My former roommate lives in New Mexico and told me about Navajo Fry Bread. I've never had "authentic" fry bread before but wanted to give it a try. I used the fry bread much like a tortilla. I served the fry bread with chipotle tempeh (I used the Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix- Chipotle flavor) and served with Nutritional Yeast Cheese.

Using the fry bread as a tortilla turned out wonderful adding new a dimension to the tacos. They would have been even better if I would have had some refried beans to go with them.

The original recipe for the fry bread can be found HERE

The picture is from (I forgot the take a picture when I made them)

Navajo Fry Bread
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • Oil for frying

    1.Combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir in 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Knead until soft but not sticky. Shape dough into balls about 3 inches in diameter. Flatten into patties 1/2 inch thick, and make a small hole in the center of each patty.

    2.Fry one at a time in 1 inch of hot oil, turning to brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
