Navajo Tacos

When we moved to Utah my husband told me about these little gems. He originally told me about the bread part of them and then added the taco part. There's a place on 3100 South in Salt Lake City that makes these. I believe it's called Navajo Joe's. It's a little part of a larger building so if you aren't looking for it you'll drive right past it. So if you are ever in the area, I recommend it (if it's still there, we don't live in SLC anymore so I don't know.)

These are really good. You can do just about anything to them and they are still good. The bread is also really good with cinnamon sugar and honey on top, perfect for a dessert! Enjoy!

Navajo Tacos

Fry Bread
2C all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1C buttermilk
oil for frying

Stir together flour, baking powder & salt. Stir in buttermilk and mix until dough forms. Knead dough until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes. Break off 3/4" pieces and flatten into rounds, making it thinner in the center. Fry, turning once, until golden brown.

1 lb hamburger
1 pkg taco seasoning
shredded cheddar cheese

Cook and drain hamburger. Add seasoning. Layer on fry bread and top with ranch or sour cream.

A million different possibilities!
