Indian Fry Bread

Indian Fry bread, or Navajo tacos as my grandpa used to call them, is a favorite at our house. Years ago when we didn't have hardly any money to feed our family, it was a common meal, because of the few ingredients that it takes. Whenever my brother and wife would come we would have it. So it is a comfort food too!
I am trying to eat healthier now and frying things in Crisco just doesn't seem like the smartest idea. So I did these in coconut oil tonight and we all loved the taste of it. They were not greasy at all.
I just had to share this with all of you!

Indian Fry Bread

2 C flour- I use 1 C white, 1 C wheat
1/2 tsp salt
1 heaping Tablespoon baking powder
Almost 1 C water
Coconut oil for frying

Mix the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the water and mix until it forms a soft, elastic dough. Let sit for 15 minutes to 1 hr. In a frying pan heat up coconut oil until water sizzles when dropped in it. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll out with a rolling pin. Fry in the pan with the oil.

We serve ours with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, olives. You can also add some kind of meat, cheese, avocado. A favorite is just sprinkling powdered sugar on them when they are still warm and eating them that way.
