Navajo Tacos

I have loved Navajo Tacos since Frontier Pies (a resturant that used to be in Riverdale). I used to buy my scone dough from Kent's market in Roy, but since I don't have the luxury o being close anymore, I found this recipe on the web.

2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. powdered milk
Warm water

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and powdered milk. Add warm water, one tablespoon at a time until dough is formed. Knead dough until soft but not sticky. Let stand for two hours covered with a damp cloth. Shape or pat into two inch balls. Flatten into circles about eight inches in diameter. Fry dough in one inch of hot grease in a skillet or in a deep fryer. For very crisp bread make dough very thin.

We don't fry our dough, we just put it on a flat pan on the stove and brown it. You can top your scone with chili, sour cream, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce. Pretty much anything you'd put on a taco.

  1. I've been making fry bread for a while now, but I had never thought to just dry fry it! I stopped making it because I hated all the oil. Such a god idea thanks!
