Navajo Tacos + Scones

 Every couple years I remember how good navajo tacos are and we decide to make them... then we eat them for three days straight. Haha. Everything about them is so GOOD! They're pretty easy to make too and don't take long at all. All you need is a good chile recipe and some Rhodes Rolls. If you haven't discovered Rhodes Bake'n Serve Rolls you don't know what you're missing because they're awesome. If you're great at making bread and have the time you can surely use your own bread recipe for this but these rolls are always in my freezer and I'd rather just pull them out and they're always good.

So you're going to follow the thawing directions on the bag. When the rolls are thawed, roll them out thin. Heat a few inches of oil on high. We have a fryer so I use that and heat it as high as it'll go. When your oil is hot lay the dough on the surface and it should start to float. It only takes about five seconds or so to cook on each side. It should turn golden brown pretty quick so don't walk away!
Turn it and brown on the other side. Take out of the oil and drain on a paper towel. I usually use another paper towel to dab off the extra oil. They're best if you eat them right away so whoever is frying the bread just plan on eating last.
 
 Then you top it with your favorite chili, sour cream, shredded lettuce, fresh chopped tomatoes, cheese and whatever else you like on a navajo taco.

What makes this meal even better is the dessert... I looooooove scones.. the fry bread not the biscuit kind. When someone says scone and I get a biscuit I am disappointed to the point of anger. Maybe not that bad but really, who doesn't like a fried up piece of yummy bread?
 This one is covered in butter, raspberry honey, cinnamon, sugar and powdered sugar. A little excessive maybe? No, it was amazing. I did feel sick after not having self control and eating two of these but it was so worth it.

 This second one has melted fudge chocolate, powdered sugar and cinnamon.. We put marshmallows and bananas on the girls but really the toppings are endless. You should put this on your dinner menu for the week :)
