Mmmmmm..... sopapillas! I remember when I was in school in New Mexico they used to serve a bowl of Frito Pie (frito's topped with chili, lettuce, and sour cream), with some fry bread (sopapillas). That is one of my all time favorite dishes.
That's good stuff I bet! We mostly had Sopa's, but I did have a friend who lived at the Taos Pueblo and his mom made some good fry bread sometimes..... been a long time since I have had any.
1tbs baking powder
1 tbs powder milk.
Mix in some water to a good dough and let it rest for 1 hour or longer...the longer the softer the inside!
Pull dough balls about 1-1/2 the size of a golf ball through your index and thumb and pinch it off.\
Roll out to about 1/8" thick....make sure you poke you thumb nail though the center or use a knife-this part is very important. If you don't you'll have a big fluffy thingy...hahaha.
Fry in cast iron with about 3/4" of oil, crisco is best! Let it get golden brown before you flip!
I may just have to make some know.
Top it with whatever floats yer boat! I like mine with just salt, the indian way. Powder sugar goes good too.
