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
