You can eat the same foods while camping that you tend to eat at home but it often tastes better for some reason. Maybe it’s the open fire you’re cooking it in or maybe it’s the fresh air, either way food just tastes better when you’re camping. The ease of cooking a great big pot of Dutch Oven Chili over the campfire is that you can dump everything in the pot while you’re puttering around in the morning and then let it simmer for a few hours until you’re ready to eat. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste.
Everyone has their own favorite recipes with some liking it with ground beef and others with cubed beef or added sausage. You may want it with beans or without and there are those who want cubed potatoes or corn in theirs. That’s the beauty of a good chili. It can cater ot every taste. You may want yours with chicken and cheese or with green chili and jalapeno. There are as many kinds of chili as there are camp cooks and the families they are cooking for.
One suggestion we can make is that you might want to make more than you think you’ll need. You can eat it the next day as chili dogs, or with your scrambled eggs, or poured over biscuits. You can make a quick meal as the kids dash in and out of the campsite on their way to the next activity.
