Ingredients

  • 1 package California Lavash Naan Bread
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 cups pinto beans
  • 1/2 tbsp butter

Taco Seasoning for the Meat:

  • 1 tsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried minced onion
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika

Seasoning for the Pinto Beans:

  • dash garlic salt
  • dash ground cumin
  • dash onion powder
  • dash paprika
  • 1 dash ground black pepper

Toppings for the Indian Tacos:

  • shredded American and Colby cheese
  • plain nonfat Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • diced tomatoes
  • shredded butter or iceberg lettuce

Instructions

  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet with the taco seasoning.

  2. Season the beans with the garlic salt, cumin, onion powder, and paprika, then heat on the stove or in the microwave until warmed through.

  3. Once the beans are seasoned and heated, place them in a colander and drain the juice from them. Do not rinse them since this will wash away the seasonings, just allow the juice to drain.

  4. Place the Naan bread on a baking sheet.

  5. Heat the Naan bread in the oven for 3-4 minutes on 400F and remove. Once heated, run a stick of butter over the top of the bread, just enough to moisten the bread. 

  6. Cut the bread in half with a knife or pizza cutter, then begin to assemble the tacos.

  7. Start by adding an even amount of the pinto beans to each piece of Naan bread, then add the ground beef, along with any other desired toppings.

  8. Serve while hot and enjoy!
