Reviews for Indian Fry Bread Tacos
"I'm Native American and grew up eating Indian Fry Bread, very delighted to see a recipe like this on Taste of Home!!"
"Best Food Ever!! Love making this for my family and can't wait to make it again:))"
"These were good and easy to make. I would make these again."
"This is a great recipe. I've used a similar one for about 10 years now. Indian Tacos is a Christmas Dinner tradition at our home. If I didn't fix them each year, I'm sure I'd have a rebellion on my hands. The original recipe was given to me by a Native American Indian in Colorado whose husband was a chief on their tribe's ranch. The first time we had them with this couple, I knew it was a winner. This is so easy and sure puts a different slant on the "average" taco."
"I tried fry bread at a fair and loved it so when i saw this recipe, I just had to make it. I wasn't disappointed this recipe was awesome! Though next time i will double it."
