Welcome to Red Couch Recipes!
The letter of the week for Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday is P for Panini Navajo Tacos. This is a favorite meal with the Red Couch Children. They like to grill and make their own Navajo Taco; they like chili right out of the can for this meal. You can deep fry it, but we find that using our Panini Maker to make the "fry bread" is much easier and hopefully more healthy.
Recipe for Fry Bread
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups milk
In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and milk. Mix well. Separate dough into balls, about 7 balls. On floured surface, roll dough into circles with rolling pin. Just add a little vegetable oil or olive oil to your Panini Maker. When you grill the "fry bread," make sure you don't close the lid. Closing the lid will smash the bread too much. When one side is toasty brown, just flip it over to grill the bread. Drain on paper towels.
Here is the "fry bread" ready to be topped. You could also use a George Foreman Grill or just an electric fry pan or large skillet on the stove. The "fry bread" is ready to be topped.
Navajo Taco Toppings
Chili --we usually use two cans of chili (15 ounce) for our family of five
Grated Cheese -- I used feta because I had some in the fridge.
Salsa, if desired
Guacamole or Avocado, if desired.
Thanks for relaxing on my Red Couch today!
