How to cook a crowd pleasing Mexican feast by the campfire...
Written by Joshua McFadden

 

 

I am a big fan of nachos, tacos & burritos around a campfire... actually, anywhere for that matter! With that said, you could easily turn this recipe into a Dutch Oven taco or burrito filling. Use the same confiment plate, add some warm tortillas, & serve. Everybody kjnows how to use a taco station. I always make salsas or marinate my meats the night before, anything that can be done ahead, I do. I really preger to relax, drink wine, cause trouble, & hang with nature & my friends when camping. Being prepared makes cooking with a fire so much easier. Cooking in one pan & grilling something to add to the meal is the way to go.

You want a nice fire with some good coals going. The thing with cooking with a Dutch Oven is that you will be putting coals on top to create the oven effect.

I start with a glug of oil into a hot Dutch Oven, then add the meat & let brown. Next add the onions & cook down for a bit, maybe 8-12 minutes. Then I add in the seasoning packet & season with salt. Next add the beans & heat through. Then re-season. After that's done, remove from the fire & let cool. The cooling allows you to mic in the chips with the meat & the beans. If they're too hot, the chips will get soggy.

Once cool, toss in some chips & mix around. Then layer with cheese, olives, salsa & repeat. Top the whole thing with a good bit of cheese. Then put on the lid of the Dutch Oven & place coals directly on top of it. This will heat & bake the nachos.

Once it's all melted, serve next to the platter of goods & enjoy.

  • When you reheat or cook with a Dutch Oven from the top, you layer on the goods to melt, & heat just like in a home oven.
  • Whatever you don;t eat can just cool in the Dutch Oven, & then get reheated in teh morning with eggs for a nacho casserole.
