Authentic Navajo fry bread is always made with Blue Bird Flour (that's just Navajo flour of choice) and deep fried in a heavy skillet in Blue Cap Lard..but other flour and lard will do of course..each piece should be a little bigger than a store bought flour tortilla and always make a little slit or tear a little hole by poking finger through the middle so bread won't be one big puff. Heat should be about medium-high and will be ready when you see a little bit of smoke coming out of has to be very hot..dip each bread one at a time gently into oil. When sides start to brown, carefully turn to other side with a fork and or tongs. Should be a golden brown. Sit each piece on the side on top of paper towels in a big bowl so grease drains properly. You can cover with a light kitchen towel to keep warm....enjoy ;)
