  1. So good, and much better than using store bought tortillas. My favorite type of tacos. the whole family loves them. I'll be making this again soon
  2. i love navajo tacos. my stepmother would make this whenever we had leftover chili. omg! we would beg my stepmom to make it because it was so good. my stepmom spent twenty something years in monticello, ut, so she has a lot of good recipes that we love.


i love cooking and i collect cookbooks of all kinds, my husband matt is in iraq at the present time and hopefully will be home soon. i guess i should update, mj is home for the time being, waiting on orders to go back, i guess that is what you get when you are married to a soldier boy, he is the love of my life, we have our little holy terra, our grandbaby and she is a handful!!! but the the light of our lives, we are now in az taking care of the old ladies,(my mother and grandmother) who cant take care of themselves, grandma just had hip replacement and mama has ocpd, so at least we are warm, it is beautiful living out here in the middle of now where in the desert, but miss my kids, and am going to miss mj when he leaves in april may god bless you all and your families
