Spooky and cool October nights are great for sitting around a fire, telling ghost stories, and baking delicious treats.
Here are some campfire recipes that are devilishly delicious.
The classic campfire treat – graham crackers, chocolate and a toasted marshmallow. Brighten up your s’mores with fruit (strawberry slices are a great choice), extras like peanut butter or a s’mores bar with plenty of candy options to add to your campfire creation.
Nachos in foil
Lean ground beef
Your favorite taco seasoning
Canned green peppers, drained
Canned diced tomatoes, drained
Canned black beans, drained
Mexican blend grated cheese
Sour cream for garnish
1. Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat on the stovetop. Stir in taco seasoning to coat, then add tomatoes and green peppers. Remove from the heat and set aside.
2. Fold the foil pouches into the desired serving size. Make sure to fold the foil in half, then use one half to hold the food and the other half to cover.
3. Place chips in bottom of package, then sprinkle with ground beef, black beans, onion and cheese, as desired.
4. Fold the other half of the package over and pinch. Cut a hole in the top of each package so that the steam can escape and keep the crisps from getting soggy.
5. Place on hot coals or off heat for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
The ultimate in tasty ready meals. Use a bag of corn chips as the base for your taco. Add the toppings to the open bag, grab a fork, and start following the kids for your sleight of hand. Set up a traveling taco bar to party with pulled pork, ground beef, and plenty of other toppings for your guests to choose from. For vegetarian guests, grill vegetables and offer beans. Offer salsas, cheeses and other condiments and let’s go.
Campfire dessert cones
Let kids wrap a waffle cone with candies, marshmallows, chocolate chips and more. Wrap each cone in foil, then cook on the heat until heated through. It should take about 10 minutes. Let them cool a bit before serving. F
