  1. Frybread

    Frybread is a flat dough fried or deep-fried in oil, shortening, or lard. The dough is generally leavened by yeast or baking powder. Frybread can be eaten alone or with various toppings such as honey, jam, or hot beef. Frybread can also be made into tacos. It is a simple complement to meals. Frybread may have a significant role in some modern Native American cultures. It is often served both at home and at gatherings. The way it is served varies from region to region and different tribes have different recipes. It can be found in its many ways at state fairs and pow-wows, but what is served to the paying public may be different from what is served in private homes and in the context of tribal family relations. According to Navajo tradition, frybread was created using flour, sugar, salt and lard given by the United States government when the Navajo Native Americans were relocated to Bosque Redondo, New Mexico from Arizona in 1864. Frybread was named the official "state bread" of South Dakota in 2005. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that a plate of fried bread consists of 700 calories and 27 grams of fat. Frybread is also known in South American cooking as a cachanga.
