Navajo Tacos

 The big game that we have all been waiting for is about to begin. The Super Bowl is always a good excuse to eat lots of food, and consume tons of your favorite beverages. I made these Navajo Tacos last night for dinner though. After I made them I thought they would of been great to serve for a super bowl party. Too late, already ate them and loved them. I have never made them myself before, but I have enjoyed them plenty of times in my lifetime. One thing that I will try next time when I make them are: roll my dough out for the bread part. Mine turned out really thick, yummy but thick. If you love tacos in general, you will love Navajo Tacos. Now don’t party too hard tomorrow , but I hope you all enjoy your super bowl parties.


Navajo Bread:

3 cups of flour

1/2 tsp of salt

3 rounded tsp of baking powder

3/4 cup of milk

1/2 cup of water

Crisco to fry the bread in

Mix your flour, salt and baking powder together with a fork. Add the milk to the mixture and mix it up. Add a 1/2 cup of water slowly because you may not need it all. The water is just to help the dough come together. Once the dough is mixed cover with a towel to sit or rise a little for 45 minutes.

Mean while you can get the toppings all ready.

Brown your hamburger with 1/2 an chopped onion. Once the hamburger is no longer red add a bout 1 Tablespoon of taco seasoning. Let the hamburger simmer on the lowest heat until you are ready to serve.

Take one can of chili beans and heat them either in your microwave or stove top. I like to add a little bit of garlic salt to my beans as well.

Chop up some tomatoes, lettuce and olives .

Heat about 3 large tablespoons of Crisco in a frying pan over medium high heat. Once your dough has risen roll out or use your hands to shape the dough into small tortilla size pieces.  Place the dough into the hot Crisco for about 30 seconds on each side. Serve warm with all your toppings as well as cheese, sour cream and your favorite salsa.
