  2. Grab a bag of chips and crush them a little before you open the bag.
  3. Add your ground protein in the bag, and toppings like cheese, diced tomato and avocado, black beans, salsa, or anything else you like, and voilá!

Delicious and real easy. You can prepare the ingredients beforehand and keep them in containers until you’re ready to eat.

Campfire Breadsticks

This is a great snack. You could even bring along some bottled marinara sauce to dip in. All you need is a container of store bought pizza (or breadstick) dough, butter, a few condiments or spices, and a stick or skewer.

  1. Roll out the store-bought dough over some aluminum foil.
  2. Tear off a piece of dough and wrap it around the stick.
  3. Stand by the campfire and rotate the stick like a rotisserie chicken.
  4. Let it get golden brown and remove from the heat.
  5. You can roll it in butter and sprinkle on your favorite toppings, cinnamon, cheese, and herbs. Be as creative as you want.
