Tasty Tuesday - Navajo Taco's

Tasty Tuesday

This weeks Tasty Tuesday recipe comes from one of the first blogs that i became thoroughly addicted to....Or So She Says. These ladies are expert bloggers and have developed such a great blog, they discuss just about every topic under the sun including great recipes. 
My hubbys loves a great Navajo Taco, it's a very manly food, i guess? And it reminds us of good ole Scone Cutter in Logan, UT. so when i saw this recipe on Or So She Says.. i knew i had to give it a go. It is wonderful and the hub thought i was awesome when i made this for him. The boys love it too. I usually just end up making there's into a "cheese pizza" which they love.

Navajo Taco's

Here's what you will need:
  • Roads Rolls
  • Canola Oil
  • Shredded Lettus
  • Chili
  • Cheese
  • Tomato(optional)
  • Avocado(optional)
  • Olives(optional)
  • Sour Cream(optional)
Thaw out some Rhodes rolls, smush together 2 for the kid size and mom portions and 3-4 for Man size portions. Then flatten them with your hands and work them into a flat circular shape.
Heat about  one to two inches of oil in your skillet over Med-High heat. If you have a little deep fryer(yes i do and yes i am a bit embarrassed about it) it makes this job not quite as messy. To make sure it is heated enough dip the corner of your flattened dough in the oil,  if it starts sizzling it is ready if it doesn't then wait a while longer.

When ready gently place one or two flattened dough patties into the oil. They cook fast so watch them. I turn them after a minute or less and let the other side cook too. Remove when browned and place on paper towel and then dab with more paper towels to get some of the oil out, be careful though it will be hot. If making kids cheese pizza's immediately put cheese on so it can start to melt.
Now just top with whatever topping you like. It's so yummy and we usually make extra and have scones with honey butter for dessert. I know it's a pretty big carb load but go on a walk after dinner and you'll feel better about yourself:)
