When you're sick of eating all the same meals when out camping, these new recipe's will change the game. Take a look at some of our favorites that you can use next time you're out in the wild. Foil Packet recipes are the definition of easy recipes. Just use aluminum foil to create your packets, throw in the ingredients (some might need to be cooked before this step), and then bake or grill! Not only is the cooking part easy, but clean up is a cinch. No pots and pans to scrub because everything was contained inside the foil packets!

Tinfoil Nachos - This is the best nachos recipe because you can just throw everything into the foil packets and then bake them in the oven or put them on the grill. It’s so easy and doesn’t take long at all. You can make these easy nachos packets as small or as large as you’d like, making them for a crowd or just for yourself. You can make some with chicken and some with beef; some with jalapenos and some without! They’re fully customizable, super delicious, and totally fun!

Ingredients;

  •  Tortilla Chips
    -Green Chiles
    -Ground Beef (with taco seasoning!)
    -Cheese
    -Black or Pinto Beans
    -Jalapenos
    -Topped with sour cream.

Instructions;

-Heat grill to medium high heat (or heat oven to 350F), In a large skillet, brown beef over medium high heat. Stir in the taco seasoning and stir to coat. When almost browned, toss in the green chiles (both fully drained) and stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.

-Fold two large 12x24 inch sheets of foil in half and fold up the edges to create the bottom of each packet.
-Place half the chips at the bottom of each foil packet. Sprinkle each with half the beef mixture, half the beans, half the onion(if you have it), and top with half the cheese. Lastly sprinkle with chopped cilantro(if you'd like).
-Fold the other half of each foil packet and pinch shut. Cut a hole in the top of each packet as shown so steam can vent (and avoid chips getting too soggy).
-Bake or grill for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Top with sour cream, jalapenos, or your fav nacho toppings.
-Enjoy!

Campfire Cones;  Ice cream isn’t a realistic dessert option while camping, but who says you have to lose the cone completely? To make campfire cones, line a sugar cone with peanut butter and then fill the cone with your favorite toppings like mini marshmallows, chocolate chips or M&Ms, and bananas. Wrap the cone in aluminum foil and warm it up over the campfire for 5 to 10 minutes.

Wrap the banana in tin foil and warm over the campfire, then eat the contents of your banana with a spoon.
