Navajo Tacos

We love Navajo Tacos at our house. This is a simple but yummy recipe for them. It is the best fry bread recipe I have come across and I have tried many recipes.

Navajo Tacos
Your favorite recipe for chili or you can use taco meat and a can of black or pinto beans. I use this Chili here.
tomatoes, chopped
lettuce, chopped or shredded
pico de gayo~which is diced tomatoes,jalapenos, and onions all mixed together
Olives, chopped
Guacomole or chopped avocados~we prefer the chopped for these
Sour cream
Shredded Cheese
Limes~to squeeze juice all over the top

Fry Bread:
4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 T. vegetable or canola oil
1/4 tsp salt
2 T. baking powder
Just enough milk or water to make the dough come together. I use between 1 1/4 cup to 1 1/2 cup I usually do half milk and half water.

Mix all the dry ingredients then add the oil and the milk/water until soft dough forms. Let rest for 10 minutes. Then roll out into small circle or squares and fry in hot oil until browned on both sides.

Place Chili or taco meat on top of fry bread. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!!

This is the kids version of it: I tear up the fry bread into bite size pieces for them then top with toppings so it is easier for them eat!!

Doesn't that look yummy!!!
