Easy Navajo Tacos



Serves: 10

As needed Oil, for frying
1 (10-count) tube of Flaky Dinner Rolls
1 cup sour cream, divided
1 tsp. chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce, minced
2 cups refried beans, warmed up
2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced
3 cups finely shredded Romaine lettuce
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
1 cup diced tomatoes
2 green onions, diced

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375 degrees F.
  2. With your fingers and hands flatten out each dinner roll to about ¼-inch thickness (they puff up when fried). Fry rolls one at a time in hot oil, turning the bread over until it is lightly golden brown on each side. Remove from oil and let drain on a paper towel lined plate. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine half of the sour cream with the chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce. Blend until combined.
  4. Build your Navajo Tacos by smearing about 1/4 cup of refried beans on the fry bread, followed by a little bit of the spicy sour cream sauce, diced California Avocado, lettuce, shredded cheese, tomato, sour cream, and a little bit of green onions on top.
  5. Continue with the remaining fry bread and ingredients.
  6. Enjoy!

Note: Leave out the spicy sour cream sauce if you don't like it spicy.

* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
