Here’s another easy family camping recipe you can try on the campfire: campfire cheesy nachos.
Campfire cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, and here’s something easy to make. So easy, you can get the kids involved.
Making Campfire Cheesy Nachos
We cheated here and brought a packet of prepared salsa to the campsite.
Step 3 – Throw some nachos into a Dutch Oven and mix in with the salsa. (If your Dutch Oven is cool, let your kids do this).
Sprinkle cheese on top. (Again, something the kids can do).
Set up your Dutch Oven so it heats from the top by placing coals on the top.
Not got a dutch oven? No problem, a cast iron skillet will work, though you will have more heat coming from the bottom than the top.
Not got a cast iron skillet? No problem again! Lay two sheets of foil on top of one another and spoon the nacho mixture into the middle. Wrap up the foil to completely seal the mixture. Place the foil in the hot embers, not the flame, of your campfire.
It will only take a few minutes to cook, whichever method you use.

Obviously this is not a meal in itself, though you could of course have it as a fireside snack.
Here are some things you could make to go with your Campfire Cheesy Nachos.
