LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 In slow cooker, stir together Ground Beef ingredients. Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 hours. Stir mixture to break up beef. Cover; cook 2 hours longer or until beef is no longer pink. With slotted spoon, remove beef from slow cooker; place half in bowl and keep warm. Place remaining half in freezer container or freezer plastic bag; freeze for another use.
  • 2 With hands or rolling pin, flatten dinner roll dough into rough rounds about the diameter of a small taco shell. If sticky, dust with flour.
  • 3 Heat cast-iron or deep skillet over medium-high heat. Fill with about 1/2 inch of canola oil; heat oil until hot. Fry dough rounds in batches a few minutes per side or until dough is deep golden brown. Flip; repeat. Remove fried bread to plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  • 4 Top fry bread with beef and desired toppings. Serve with a knife and fork, or if you don’t mind a little mess, just like a regular taco.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

I purposefully made a double batch of beef for this slow-cooker recipe, so half could be saved in the freezer for future fry-bread taco nights!

Frozen dinner roll dough makes quick work of the fry bread, plus it’s already portioned nicely.

Set out any toppings for these tacos that you'd like for a taco bar. That way, everyone can top their tacos as desired.
