Since taco night has always been a staple at my house, I am constantly on the lookout for new ways to spice things up a little bit — sometimes figuratively, and sometimes literally.

I’ve tried everything from healthier zucchini taco shells to dessert tacos topped with ice cream.

And now that I’ve come across this recipe for deep-fried Navajo tacos, I absolutely can’t wait to give it a try!

In this exclusive video, you’ll see how to take taco night to a whole other level with delicious deep-fried shells.

And that’s just half the fun, since you then get to fill them with any and all of your favorite taco night toppings — from ground beef, to juicy tomatoes, to yummy Monterey Jack cheese.

These shells are so easy to make from scratch. In no time at all, the entire family will be chowing down on this amazing twist on a traditional taco!
