One time I went with my kids to a fair in the town we live in and my children all wanted a Navajo taco, but they are pretty expensive and I didn’t think they were worth that much money. So when we got home, I hurried and made up a bunch of Clean Eating Navajo tacos. It cost me probably 1/10th of what they cost at the fair and we had fun as a family making the dough. These are quite as good as the ones from the fair, because they don’t have yeast in them and raise and all that like you do with bread. But, they are almost as good, for WAY less work. Plus, when you make them yourself, you can choose the type of flour and oil you want.
I also use a very basic, simple chili recipe to top it off, so it really doesn’t take very long. You can get the quick chili recipe here. What I do is get the chili started simmering away then I make the bread and I just serve the bread as it finishes so each person gets it nice and hot.
I can’t tell you how much my children love these navajo tacos. They love the bread so much, but I love that I can get them to eat chili, which some of them wouldn’t normally do. Of course, the fry bread is delicious by itself and they try to eat it alone, but I make them have at least one with all the healthy stuff on it first.
Have you ever made Navajo tacos from scratch? You should try. It’s a lot easier than you may think.
This simple Navajo Tacos recipe is super-easy because the dough doesn't have to rise and pulls together in a few minutes. You can even get away with only putting a little oil in the bottom of a pan. And bonus - the chili pulls together in a few minutes. My kids totally love this stuff!
