A New Idea for Dinner

Fry Bread Tacos
by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings

    For the fry bread:
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tbsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 cup milk
    • 4 cups oil for frying, or as needed
    For the tacos:
    • 1 lb. taco seasoned meat (beef, pork or chicken)
    • 2 cups your favorite beans (refried, pinto, kidney, black)
    • 3 cups shredded lettuce
    • 1 cup (4 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 large tomato, chopped
    Additional ingredients for serving:
    • Salsa, sour cream, guacamole, taco sauce (if desired)


    1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk with a wooden spoon and mix until the dough comes together. Add more flour if necessary to be able to handle the dough. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, at least 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

    2. Heat oil in a large, deep heavy skillet to 375°F. Oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Divide dough into 4 to 6 pieces and use a rolling pin to shape dough into ¼-inch thickness circles.

    3. Fry breads in the hot oil until golden on both sides, turning only once. Drain on paper towels.

    4. Top fry bread with your choice of beans, choice of taco seasoned meat, lettuce, cheese and tomatoes. Top with your choice of additional ingredients, such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole or taco sauce.
