Navajo Tacos


6 1/3 c. cake flour

1 1/2 Tbls. baking powder

1 Tbls. Salt

6 Tbls. Powdered Milk

5 Tbls. Shortening

2 c. water

Vegetable Oil for frying

In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together. Add the shortening little by little until small balls form. Add 1 cup of water and mix it well with your hands; then add the rest of the water and knead the dough well. Cover the dough and let rest for 30 minutes. Divide & Roll dough into 6 pieces. Fry until golden brown. Serves 6
1 lb. Taco meat
Shredded Cheese
Chopped Tomatoes
Ranch Dressing
Sour Cream
After frying the dough, add desired toppings. I add the cheese, then meat, then lettuce, then tomatoes , then Ranch, then sour cream, then salsa. These are filling!
You can also use the scone dough recipe I have posted in the "bread"section.
*I know people also make Navajo Tacos with chili, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and tomatoes instead of the taco meat. However you eat them will be fantastic!
