My older sister was the first of all the kids to get married. She and her boyfriend and later husband were pretty cool to always let me and my brothers hang out with them. I have lots of memories of them taking us sledding, hiking, swimming, watching movies, cooking dinner, and out to his parents house where they had an ostrich farm. When my sister was in school at Rick’s College she even had him bring me to stay for the weekend on several occasions. I remember when my sister was first married she would let me go hang out and have sleepovers. We would watch movies and have a treat, and she was always busy doing something with her hands – that is something that has not changed. She is extremely talented and has sold crafty items at boutiques for well over 15 years. She recently opened an Etsy Shop and sells some pretty cute stuff. You should check it out! Aside from all her craftiness, she is also a pretty darn good cook, and I have some absolutely delicious recipes in my box because of her. At one of our sleepovers when she was first married she got up early on a Saturday morning and made us scones with honey butter. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Seriously one of my favorites! Fry bread is so delicious with either sweet or savory – heck anything cooked in oil is! She then introduced me to the Navajo Taco, and I have been hooked ever since!
We always ate them with Nally Chili and they were so good! When I learned how to make real Mecian Refried Beans we tried that and it quickly became a favorite at our house!
With all the carnivals and fairs we have been to over the summer I have seen Navajo Tacos sold at every one which gave me a hankering for some homemade goodness. If I am having a busy day I have used Rhodes frozen rolls for the fry bread and they turn out wonderfully.
Add whatever you fancy for toppings – tomato, red onion, lettuce, avocado, cilantro, olives, cheese, and for me salsa and sour cream are a must!
In college they became a roommate favorite and when we get together it is one of recipes that we love to cook up. I don’t think I have ever made these and heard a complaint. Everyone loves them!
Go ahead and give them a try. They don’t take long if you use the Vegetarian Nalley Chili (which is seriously delicious and is 99% fat free) and some Rhodes bake n serve rolls – they are for sure a crowd pleaser!
See the Happy!
