Tacos and Indian Fry Bread


Indian Tacos and I go way back. I probably first tried one as soon as my mom was able to feed it to me. The only drawback was that I never had it more than once a year at the State Fair! Probably one of the bigger draws of going to the Fair is enjoying all the “once a year” foods they have. Corn Dogs, Candy Apples and Indian Tacos were always among my favorites.

I realize that many State Fairs don’t have the Indian Tacos. If you have never tried one then I would compare it to the best Taco Salad in a shell you have ever tried, but a lot more bread to it!


For Fry Bread:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

4 cups oil for frying or as needed


1 pound ground beef

1 Tbsp . Taco Seasoning I make my own or use Penzey’s southwest seasoning

1 15 oz . can of Ranch Style Beans (Ranch Style is a brand of beans, but you can sub any chili beans if you don’t have them in your area)

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce

1/4 cup of chopped onions optional

Other topping suggestions: Sour Cream Picante or Taco Sauce, Guacamole
