This is all your fault - #1

Tacos are actually amazing. I'm not a carnivore, but they make amazing substitutions and it's all about the taco sauce anyway. They're kind of like Mexico's answer to the sammich.

Now I know that Taco Bell is about as removed from real Mexican cuisine as China Buffet is removed from Chinese cuisine, so I went on Wiki to try and find out more about real tacos. They're kinda gross. Like "head tacos" filled with cow head muscles or brains. Or tongue. Or even the eyes! *gag* Then there's all the tripe involved. "Sweaty Tacos" actually sound worse than they are.

I do want to try Indian tacos made with Navajo Frybread. (I thought we weren't supposed to call them 'Navajo' and they call themselves Diné?)

Anyway, frybread sounds nummy.

And that is my entry about tacos, brought to you by action_doll.

Frybread FTW! I loooove frybread. On Isabella Rez, where I worked at the cultural center for a summer, they just call it frybread without any sort of modifier. A friend of mine from Oklahoma gave me a pretty good recipe for it, which I may have included in my thesis -- if I can track it down, I'll send it your way.

I think you have a link to nowhere, but I remember one of the characters in "Smoke Signals" wearing a Frybread Power t-shirt. I loved it. I love that movie, actually. Have you seen it? It stars Adam Beach.

I'd love a frybread recipe, it does sound delicious.

Yeah, it's the one from Smoke Signals, only the link was supposed to take you to a shop where they have it for sale. :) I see them on sale at powwows now and again -- although I haven't been to a powwow in a few years at this point, so I'm probably out of touch!

I'll see if I can dig up that frybread recipe. Might not be 'til after I get back from England. :)
