53: Chocolate Fry Bread from The Fry Bread House

For Native American cultures in the United States, fry bread, a flat dough fried in oil, varies from region to region and from tribe to tribe in how it's made and the way it's served.

At The Fry Bread House, with locations in Phoenix and Mesa, owner Tohono O'odham fills his delicious fry bread with everything from spicy red or green chili beef, refried beans, cheese, or a little of each. And when it comes time for dessert, there's nothin' like the simple sweetness of golden fried dough drizzled with home made chocolate sauce.

Like the dessert stork dropping of a sweet delivery, the chocolate fry bread comes wrapped in paper. Releasing its contents means looking upon a sizable circle of fry bread cut into four pieces and drizzled in home made chocolate sauce and butter.

The combination of golden fried dough and a "secret recipe" chocolate sauce, a creation O'odham says comes from his mom, is reminiscent of a perfect day at the state fair, but with better ingredients. Best to share with a friend or two.
