Blue corn and/or plain tortilla chips
Shredded cheddar cheese, 8-10 oz.
1 can diced tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
2 green peppers, diced
1 can jalapeños, diced and drained
Lay the tortilla chips on a foil tray. Top with shredded cheese. Add another layer of tortilla chips.
Top with more shredded cheese. Sprinkle with chopped onions, green peppers, tomatoes, and jalapeños. Cover with foil. Place on the grill over a campfire until the cheese is melted. Serve as is or with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole
Campfire Apple Crisp (recipe from freshoffthegrid.com)
4-5 apples, sliced into ¼” thin slices
1 tablespoon oil or butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons bourbon
¼ cup brown sugar
1 cup granola
Sauté the apples in a bit of oil or butter in an 8” or 10” cast iron skillet until the apples begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the spices, bourbon, and brown sugar, and stir to combine. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens and apples are tender, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle the granola evenly across the top. Place in bowls or scoop from skillet – adding a dollop of whipped cream to each serving.
