Navajo Taco for One

Makes 3 tacos. Increase amounts per persons to be served.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup water
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons shortening
1 serving refried beans (1 cup reconstituted)

Mix flour, salt, water, and baking powder. Knead and let sit 10 minutes. Heat shortening. Divide dough into 3 balls and pat or roll each piece to about 5-6 inches in diameter. Deep fry until golden brown. Top with refried beans and hot sauce, if desired.

Hot sauce for Navajo tacos:
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried onion
1/8 teaspoon cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix and serve over Navajo tacos.

Testing comment: Our family really liked these.

Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences
Come from little things...I am tempted to think...
There are no little things.
