Backcountry Dinner: Burritos

Campfire Eats

cramped up burrito recipe 1

This is a bit more complicated than our usual ramen or tortellini dinner in the backcountry, but it’s relatively easy, feeds at least 6 people if needed, and is damn good!
– Burrito Recipe –
Tools:
2 Pots and 2 Cookstoves
1 Hot Fire (or a 3rd Pot/Cookstove if no fires allowed, or you’re using dehydrated beans)
Spoons/sporks
Ingredients:
6 Flour Tortillas
1 Can Refried Beans (or dehydrated beans for less weight)
2 Pouches of Instant Rice
1 Lb of Lean Ground Beef, Dehydrated
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning – mix with dehydrated beef in a ziplock at home
Block of cheese of choice
Avocado
Bell Peppers (optional)
Hot Sauce Packets (steal from your local taco bell)
Water
Do:
Boil two pots of water (one full, one 1/4 full). In the full pot toss in the instant rice packets (follow the box instructions, usually needs to boil for 10 min). In the 1/4 pot, stir in your dehydrated beef with taco seasoning, add more water if needed. Keep cooking and stirring for about 10 min until the beef is hydrated and tastes flavorful. Meanwhile have a friend heat the can of beans in the fire, or re-hydrate your dehydrated beans in the third pot.
As an extra not-necessary-but-delicious addition, we fire roasted some bell peppers. Once hot and lightly charred, slice up for serving. Slice up the avocado. Slice up the cheese into thin easily meltable shreds. Display your hot sauce packets.
Once everything’s cooked, lay out your tortilla, load it up with all the fixings of your choosing, and roll it up tightly. Burritos!

Dutch Oven Dinner: Enchilada Casserole

Campfire Eats
One of the easiest Dutch Oven recipes we have come across and despite it’s ingredients being on the ‘not so healthy’ side of things, is absolutely delicious.  Also, who in their right mind would turn down the opportunity to use Doritos for your car camping dinner in Yosemite.  Embrace your gut and get down with this incredible campfire dinner treat from your own Dutch Oven.  We served our Casserole with roasted sweet mini peppers in our Lodge cast iron skillet.

Dutch Oven Dinner: Barbeque Ribs

Campfire Eats
When you have the time, the space and a lot of hunger, get your Dutch Oven out and cook up a feast. It truly does take time, but it’s the best kind of time – time deserved – spent sitting around the fire and enjoying the evening light while you await the best camping dinner you may have ever eaten. While kicking back at Stumpy Meadows Lake, CA we whipped this up, served with some grilled corn and lots of banquet beer.
