Every Halloween growing up, my cul-de-sac would gather in the middle of the street and eat chili and fry bread before the kids went out trick or treating. Every time I eat fry bread now, I am reminded of those sweet memories. Fry Bread, to me, screams fall. So of course, I put it on our fall menu board.
This recipe is very straight forward and very tasty. Kyle made the fry bread and I prepared the toppings.
A little side note, this is a meatless recipe but can be modified. Kyle and I did a “meat cleanse” week and this just happened to fall in this week. I would add grilled chicken or ground turkey/beef.
Fry Bread Recipe:
**Recipe modified from Allrecipes.com **Makes about 12 servings
- 4 cups All-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 2 cups Coconut oil for frying
Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Then stir in 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Knead until soft but not sticky. Shape dough into balls about 3 inches in diameter. Flatten into patties 1/2 inch thick, and make a small hole in the center of each patty. Fry one at a time in 1 inch of hot oil, turning to brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
- 1 can black beans
- 1/4 an onion, chopped
- 1-2 limes, wedged
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1 head Romaine lettuce
- Sour Cream
- Hot Sauce
In a sauce pan, put butter and onions in. Saute onions until soft and light brown in color. Add in Black beans. Cook until the beans are warmed through. You can add salt and pepper to taste. Spread beans on the top of the fry bread, pile on the other ingredients as preferred. Each amount is approximately the amount you will need for all the fry bread feeding 4-6 people.
