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.

thats some pretty fried "biscuits". but not traditional fried bread. In the "traditional"' Indian fried bread, you are to use yeast in the frying of the bread.
