A frybread or Indian taco is a frybread topped with various items normally found in tacos.

Frybread (also spelled fry bread) is a Native American food found throughout the United States. 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 or hot beef. It is a simple complement to meals.

Frybread has a significant role in 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 than what is served in private homes and in the context of tribal family relations.

Frybread was named the official "state bread" of South Dakota in 2005.[1]

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that a plate of fried bread consists of 700 calories and 27 grams of fat.[citation needed]

Frybread is also known in South American cooking as cachanga.[2]
