And cooking it when you are outdoors is very simple, and low fuss.

Of course, you can make it as elaborate as you want, but our campfire Nachos is perfect for your next camping trip.

What you need:

  • Corn Chips
  • Grated Cheese
  • Jar of Salsa
  • Toppings (all optional)  Bolognese Sauce, olives, diced tomatoes, refried beans, diced onion, sour cream, guacamole
  • Disposable aluminium tray (the sort you might get takeaway in).
  • Al-foil

How to cook it:

  • Your campfire should have been going for a while so that you have some good coals (but not too hot).  A grate placed over the coals will elevate the pan, and stop burning on the bottom.  The grate is not essential, though.
  • In the disposable tray, add your chips, salsa, toppings (like sauce, olives, beans) and spread grated cheese all over the top.      Some prefer to put the cheese on the chips and THEN the toppings….it all comes down to your personal preference.
  • Place aluminium foil over the top of your tray to protect the contents.    You might want to make the cover “peaked” so the cheese doesn’t stick to the foil.
  • Put the now prepared tray on the coals, and wait for the cheese to melt, around 10 minutes.
  • You can eat out of the tray or empty onto plates, and add remainder of toppings like sour cream, etc.

Enjoy, and don’t think about the calories.
