live in the Sonoran Desert literally surrounded
by the Gila River, Tohono O'Odham (formerly Papago)
and Ak-Chin Reservations. On Saturdays at the
town square in Sacaton, Arizona, the Native Americans
cook this fry bread in oil over mesquite fires.
It is a very special treat and rather easy to
duplicate at home. Of course, we can walk out
into our yards and tear the dead mesquite branches
from the bottoms of the trees for instant 'fuel'.
have also included a recipe for one of my favorite
fillings, Carne Adovada*,
which is slathered onto the disk of fry bread,
then the fry bread is folded over it. Watch out
because it is what they call a 'tablecloth stainer'
