“As far as I know this is the original recipe for Navajo Bread. It's is great with honey and butter. The Navajo's put chiles, cheese, onion, lettuce and beans on it, and call them Nava Tacos.”

dear staff as a real navajo fried bread eater i think someone goof..typo error...instead of 2 tablespoon of salt..try..2 teaspoon of salt..this is definately too salty...or in my opinion i go for 1 teaspoon of salt. Other than that i think it will be fine.



This recipe was not so good. There was too much salt and too much liquid. I found a different recipe on the net and tried it and it was perfect. It was much like this one but with less than 1/2 the salt and not so much liquid. If you cut down on the salt and liquid, this actually turns out well. Perhaps there was a typo in this recipe.



Another good fry bread recipe! Only thing though, you might want to edit the salt. Two tablespoons is -alot- of salt. I only used about 1 or 2 teaspoons last time I made this. Other than that it is good! Mine always seem to come out a little small, haha! ^-^
