Indian Taco


On the way home from Gatlinburg, my hubby and I made a quick stop at Cherokee.
I always make a stop there, because like everyone else in the south I am part Cherokee.
(I think the tribe was made up of lovers not warriors.)
My father's mother ,was full blooded.
I walked across the bridge, over the river to the made in China souvenir shops.
This always brings back my childhood memories. The Indian Chief is still posing for pictures with the children. The river is still making that same soothing sound as it runs over the rocks that it made when I was 7 ! I am never more at peace, than when I sit by that river.
We decided to have a little snack at one of the restaurants.
They had hot dogs and hamburgers and Indian tacos????
That was what we ordered and It was great.
So here is the recipe for all you little Indians out there hope you enjoy it.


Indian Fry Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1-1/3 cups warm water
vegetable oil for frying
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the water and knead the dough until soft. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured board until 1/4" thick. Cut out 4" rounds. Heat 1"-2" of oil in a saucepan. Fry the bread until puffed. Turn bread when edges are brown and continue cooking

Now top it with your favorite homemade chili, some cheese and onions, don't forget shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes.

Hubby took some great photos, Hope to share some with you soon.

Oh thank you for such a wonderful and simple recipe for Fry Bread. My hubby is from Oklahoma, and Indian tacos are very common out there, but for my little southern cooking knowledge, I could not recreate them... Made this recipe this evening and my hubby was in heaven. Thank you so much!!!
