When living in New Mexico one thing I would kill for was Navaho Taco's. Super easy to make or you go home with a full belly Deli either way.

So enlighten us, what is a Navaho Taco? Been thru NM a few times, but don't recall the pleasure of eating one. And yes I have been on a Reserve or two.

Mostly they will just be called an Indian Taco as a lot of tribes make them.

They are delicious though.

Vic, I know he did, but that wasn't my question. That was the tribes name, but not nessessarily the Taco's.
What is so special about the Taco?

As to what the tacos are really called, I have no idea.

I have eaten Indian Fry Bread before. Was intruduced to it in Kansas. Didn't relate it to a Gordita, since my version was sweet.

People from India also fry bread. One name for it, probably mispelled, is parata.

Navajo / Pueblo fry bread looks like it is more closely related to naan, lubhi or puri than paratha. It is very puffy (and there is a trick to that).
