Easy Navajo Taco Recipe

I always tease my husband one of the reasons I married him was for his mom’s Navajo tacos. Hers are the perfect texture of a crisp outside and a soft inside. Since I have 3 kids under the age of 5, I don’t have much time to knead and wait for her yummy dough to rise so I instead took Kelli’s mother-in-law’s simple alternative of using Rhodes Rolls and modified them with what I had on hand in my fridge: a can of butter infused biscuits. These aren’t Deanna’s tacos but they are a pretty darn good knock off as my husband scarfed down 4 of them in one sitting!

  1. Open can of biscuits and set out for a few minutes until soft.
  2. Turn on pan of olive oil to medium heat.
  3. Flatten biscuits and stretch them out a bit.
  4. Drop biscuits onto warm pan and fry until light brown, flip.
