Navajo Taco's

                                           Not my picture... Mine are never this pretty!!

Okay, until I moved to Utah I had never even heard of Navajo taco's.  But Berrett Loves them!!
So here is my recipe.
Filling- or topping:
1 onion diced
2 to 3 stalks of celery
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
*optional- Grated carrot.. sneak in a few veggies!
1 pound ground beef- or turkey- or pork- or chicken
1 to 2 cans of chili
* optional- sometimes I add left over rice to make it spread further!
Taco or chili seasoning- to taste... remember we are mild people
1 cup of salsa- heat of your choice- we are mild folks!
Grated cheese
Shredded Lettuce
sliced Olives
Extra Salsa
Sour cream or ranch dressing if your a "true" utahn!

The "scone" part of the Taco:

2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
3/4 cup warm water
Vegetable Oil or shortening for frying

 Filling prep:
In 1 to 2 tablespoons of veg. oil or butter, saute onions, celery, garlic and carrot.
When they are tender, add ground beef and brown.
Add, chili, salsa, rice, taco or chili seasoning to taste, and salsa.
Simmer on low.


Mix Flour, salt, baking powder and water.  Dough is almost biscuit consistency.  Divide into 8 balls.
Roll each circle into pie crust thickness.  I usually let mine rest for 10 minutes or so.  Deep fry in medium to hot oil or shortening.  Turn when golden and puffy. 
top with filling and Favorite Taco toppings

This is whats for dinner tonight, minus rice or carrots!!
