Indian Frybread Taco with Hominy Salsa

Share This:

A quick bread, frybread often accompanies a meal, similar to the way that tortillas can be torn into pieces and used to scoop bites of food or can be dipped in stews and soups. Frybreads can also be sprinkled with sugar or honey, or used for taco-style dishes. Indian tacos are typically topped with ground beef, but I wanted focus on the frybread and also give the hominy salsa a chance to shine. So instead, I decided to top my frybread with black beans and tons of hominy slasa.

  11. I have the same placemats! Never eaten hominy or even have a clue what it tastes like – BUT, bought all the ingredients – except can’t find FRESH publano peppers yet – for the chicken recipe – and then all for Rick Bayless’s black and red mole sauces. Wish me luck. Never tasted either before, but have always wanted to….
