Indian Fry Bread

(no lard or oil)

3 cups of flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup warm water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add warm water in small amounts and knead dough until soft but not sticky.  Adjust flour or water as needed.  Cover bowl and let stand about 15 minutes.
Pull off large egg-sized balls of dough and roll out into fairly thin rounds.  Fry rounds in hot oil until bubbles appear on the dough, turn over and fry on the other side until golden.

Tacos are simply made by using this as the shell folded, or flat, and the normal ingredients.  It is the bread that makes the difference.
