This isn’t a recipe as much as it is sharing a dinner idea.I am always looking for new ideas to make for dinner and simple easy recipes. I LOVE this dinner!… and luckily, I married someone who loves it too!
This is how we do navajo tacos. The nice thing about this meal, is it is very much up to you how to create it!
4 flour tortillas (or see fry bread option at end of post)
1 lb. ground beef1 package taco seasoning (we use taco bell brand)
1 can re-fried beans (or homemade re-fried beans which I will post in a different post later on)
1. Brown ground beef and drain. Add 3/4 cup water and taco seasoning packet to ground beef. Simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Fry tortillas until golden brown
3. Top fried tortilla with beans, beef, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and avocados.we have the cheese, lettuce, sour cream, salsa and avocados all in serperate bowls or baggies so that you can add how much you want of what to your navajo taco
If you prefer to make your own tortillas from scratch, try the recipe below:
3 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. shortening
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Cut in shortening and add enough warm water (1 tsp at a time) to make dough. Mix until dough is no longer sticky. Pinch off a small handful and roll or pat out to 1/8 inch thick. Fry in deep fat fryer or on a griddle.
