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.
