Holy crap! I tried this recipe out of boredom, thinking it wouldn't be worth a hill of beans. I used it as a base for Navajo Tacos, and it was good, but it's even better by itself. Make two pans--people will fight over it! Plus, it's not deep fried like traditional fry bread

The flavor you can get out of four simple ingredients is amazing! These were sooo good; crispy, chewy, and buttery all at once! I served them for lunch with beef salad. Yum!
