Navajo Tacos

I make these every once in a while if I have time. As I am making the bread I put the already fried ones in a warm oven while I'm frying the rest. I also do not usually broil the tacos but put out hot refried beans out and everyone builds their own tacos. I set out lettuce, tomatoes, onions, taco sauce, salsa and sometime olives and sour cream.

Spread Navajo Fry Bread with Refried Beans. Top with shredded cheese and
broil until melted. Sprinkle generously with shredded lettuce and tomatoes.
