This easy clean eating Navajo tacos recipe tells you everything you need to know about how to make Navajo tacos. They are way easier to make than you think.
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. Plus, they aren’t Clean Eating and have a ton of dough and barely any protein. 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.
They are almost as good as the ones at the fair, for WAY less work. I mean, the ones at the fair have yeast in them and have risen for several hours. I don’t know about you, but I rarely think ahead enough to have time for my dough to rise for hours. 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.
Another thing I often do is make the chili fresh and eat it with cornbread and then wait a day or two and make the fry bread and just heat up the chili. Or – even better – make a huge batch of chili and freeze it in individual containers. Then it’s so easy to throw it in a pot with a little extra water and heat it up to use on this fry bread.
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. Do you know how to make Navajo tacos now? I hope so. Have fun!
