  • Prepare Homemade Fry Bread. See recipe notes for more options.
  • Prepare or heat chili. For an easy chili recipe, try our Cheater Chili.
  • Layer 3/4 cup chili, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/2 cup lettuce, 1 tablespoon sour cream, olives, and salsa on each piece of Homemade Fry Bread.
  • Serve on a sturdy plate!



*You can use Grands Biscuits dough or frozen roll dough (thawed) instead of the Homemade Fry Bread. Roll out the biscuits or dough into a thin circle. Heat oil in a skillet to 375 degrees. Fry the dough for about 30 seconds on each side until golden brown. Drain off the excess oil and or pat it off with a paper towel. Keep warm in the oven at 200 degrees until ready to serve.
