Same as Tacos only serve on Navajo Fry Bread

4 C flour
1 t salt
1 T shortening
1 T and 2 t baking powder
1 t dry milk
1 1/3 C warm water
1 T shortening {cut in}
2 qts oil

For a smaller batch:
3 C flour
1 t salt
1 T baking powder
1 1/2 cup water
1 T shortening cut in

Mix ingredients and let sit for 10 - 15 minutes.
Break off a ball of dough about golf ball size and pat out no thicker than 1/4 inch. {In some tribal traditions a hole is always made in the center which has spiritual significance}
Fry in deep hot oil to a light golden brown, turn once to brown both sides. {Oil is hot enough if a small test piece of dough dropped in the oil begins cooking almost immediately and rises to the top}. Drain bread well and pat with paper towel to remove excess oilk. Keep covered in a bowl while cooking to keep bread warm.

Toppings can include:
Black Olives
