Sometimes when I make bread for my family I also make “Navajo Tacos”. We love the “tortillas” with taco toppings as well as using it as pita bread to dip in hummus.
Navajo tacos are also known as fry bread. It is usually cooked in oil or shortening. For this recipe I roll the dough out on the counter using oil. The oil on the bread dough when cooked will give you a little bit of the fried taste.
When making the bread recipe take out some of the dough and set it aside. Or you can make it without making the bread. I have broke down the recipe to make just the Navajo tacos.
When you are ready to cook the tortillas oil your counter with olive oil. Also oil your hands and rolling pin.
You want to use olive oil and not coconut oil. I LOVE coconut oil but it is not good for nonstick.
Heat frying pan to medium low heat. Cook each side until golden brown. You don’t need to oil the pan because the dough already has oil on it from rolling it out.
Add your favorite toppings. Some suggests are beans (black, pinto, refried, etc.), ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, olives. Enjoy!
