found this recipe before hitting up the trails during our trip to Smoky Mountain National Park. The combination of savory taco meat and spicy cheese made this an easy camp recipe that we’ll be sure to keep in the rotation.
Camp Recipe: Spicy Taco Patties & Cheesy Potatoes Foil Packet
1 lb lean ground beef or ground turkey 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, plain 2 tablespoons taco seasoning (here's an easy taco seasoning recipe if you don't have any prepackaged seasoning) 1/4 cup milk 3 cups diced hash brown potatoes (we like to use Simply Potatoes) 1 cup cheesy salsa dip Salt & Pepper
Combine meat, breadcrumbs, seasoning and milk in a bowl. Mix until well combined. Form into patties (should yield 4 patties). Make 4 large double layer square of foil (one for each patty). Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place a single patty on each one. Divide the potatoes up evenly and spread on top of the taco patties on each patty foil packet. Season potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Spread the cheesy salsa over each set of potatoes and patties. Wrap and seal the aluminum foil. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks. Cook on hot coals or a covered grill for 15 – 20 minutes. Flip about half-way through. Open with caution – there will be plenty of steam and ooey, gooey cheesy potatoes. Enjoy!
