I thought this recipe was really good. I increased the salt, as other reviewers suggested and loved the flavor. Being that I've never made fry bread before, nor have I seen anyone else make it, I knew I'd have to experiment to get this to work for me.
As soon as the dough came together, I split it in half so that I could experiment in small batches. You need to be careful not to overwork the dough or your bread will come out dense. Also, you want to fry at a high temperature in order to get the bread to bubble and rise.
I think I might also try frying in oil rather than shortening next time because I'm hoping that will make the bread a little lighter.
We used the bread as a base for pulled pork sandwiches and it was great. I will try the tacos next time. If I can get the dough to work out better next time, I'll change my rating to 5 stars, but until I work with the recipe more, I'm not sure if the density of the dough is my fault or if the recipe needs more tweaking.
