For  Navajo Bread:

2 cups whole wheat flour or almond flour or chickpea flour
2 tablespoons shortening
2½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup warm water
 olive oil spray

 In a medium bowl, add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the shortening and use your hand to cut it into the flour. Gradually add in the warm water until the dough forms. Make eight dough balls, cover and set aside. Preheat a large griddle to medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough balls to about 4 to 4½ inches. Spray the griddle pan with oil and lay the bread onto griddle, spray the tops of the bread with oil. Cook the Navajo bread until you get light brown spots on each side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover and reheat when ready to serve.


Handful of cilantro, minced
Handful of cherry tomatoes,halved

Add chopped veggies to a bow and set aside.

In a separate bowl, chopped green onions

Patis sauce:

5 Lemons
Equal amount of water
Equal amount of fish sauce

Put in a mason jar. Serve this over rice, meat and over these tacos. Make sure that the lemon juice and the fish sauce and water are equal parts. This is so good.

Take your fry bread and layer the pork, tomatoe mixture and patis sauce. Than top with green onions.
