When I was growing up I loved eating what we refer to as “scones” here in Utah, but most of the world refers to as fry bread. It is bread dough that is fried in oil, and topped with something. I love it topped with honey butter, or cinnamon and sugar, but occasionally I enjoy eating it with something a bit more savory.

That is why I love to eat them as “Navajo Tacos.” Which is basically a scone topped with savory spiced meat, beans, and all the toppings you would expect on a taco like lettuce, tomato and cheese.

I love making them now because I have found a really fast and easy shortcut, which is to use Rhodes rolls, let them defrost so they are soft, but not rising yet, then I stretch them out, fry them up, and top with all the goodies.

One of my favorite reasons to make this meal is that my kids can top their Navajo Tacos any way they like, we eat them “bar” style, so all the picky eaters are happy, and I am too. I think you will love how quick and easy these are to assemble

Ingredients

6 Rhodes rolls, thawed
Oil for frying
½ lb. ground beef
1 Tablespoon garlic
1 tsp onion powder
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 tsp cumin
⅛ Teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup black beans, heated

Toppers:
Lettuce
Tomato
Cheese
Olives
Sweet mini peppers
Ranch dressing

Instructions

In a medium size fry pan, over medium high heat, brown ground beef with spices mixed in.
Drain off any fat, and set aside. Pre heat oil to 375 degrees.

Take thawed rolls (I usually just put them in the fridge the day before I plan to use them, or put them out on the counter for an hour before use) and stretch them out to make your scone base.

Fry for 45 seconds on each side, or until golden brown.

Top with heated up black beans, the meat mixture, and all your favorite taco toppings.
