Indian Taco


This recipe is one that I have been making for many years, and my family loves it. Bannock is a fried flatbread that is great with anything, try different toppings and see what you get. Serve with your choice of sides, such as sour cream or guacamole.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 cup water, or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed


  • 1 (15 ounce) can chili

  • 1 tomato, chopped

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce


  1. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir in enough water to make a dough. Divide dough into 4 pieces and form into 6-inch patties.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in batches until puffed and golden, about 5 minutes per side.

  3. Place bannocks on serving plates and top with chili, tomato, Cheddar cheese, and lettuce.

Cook's Note:

Homemade chili is always best but a good canned chili works great as well.
