Campfire Taco in a Skillet

What do you need:

  • 1/2 kilo ground meat

  • 1 can diced roasted tomatoes

  • 1 can of pinto beans

  • 1 green pepper

  • 1 small onion

  • 2 minced garlic cloves

  • 1 tablespoon of oil

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon cumin

  • Salt

Heat the oil in a skillet over the hot coals of the campfire, then cook the onion and bell pepper for 1 minute. Add the garlic, season with chili powder, cumin and salt and cook another minute. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes and beans until heated through. Remove from heat and top with cheese. Serve when the cheese has melted.

The Ultimate One-Pot Camp Breakfast

What do you need:

  • 8 eggs

  • 3 large golden potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch pieces.

  • 2 bunches of spinach

  • 1 medium onion

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3 tablespoons of butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes

  • Salt

Fill a cast iron skillet with water (about 3/4 full) and add the potato wedges. Boil for 6 minutes over the campfire until the potatoes are soft (easy to cut). Drain and reserve.

Heat the oil in the same skillet and sauté the onion and red pepper until tender. Add the potatoes and season with chili flakes and cook until the potatoes are golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the butter and spinach and stir until the butter has melted. Finally, make 4 “wells” in the potatoes and crack 2 eggs in each. Cover the skillet and allow the eggs to cook in the heat of the campfire, to the desired doneness.

Remove from the campfire heat and then allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Save yourself the extra time and effort that goes into preparing meals over the campfire – these one-pot camping recipes are sure to win the hearts of everyone at camp!
