Pow Chow: Indian Taco

  • Author:

A mainstay at pow wows across the country, the Indian Taco is only as good as the fry bread its made on. The problem for some is that fry bread isn't exactly a healthy choice (then again, your average taco that uses a flour tortilla isn't much better). Adding a heaping of lard or butter to anything will push the dish into the unhealthy category, but fry bread doesn't have to be made that way.

Thanks to a great recipe book by Fernando and Marlene Divina, "Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditions", there is a healthier way to make fry bread, and ultimately a better (and tastier) Indian Taco.
