Our camp recipes adventure got mobile when we cooked up these Spicy Soft Tacos while camping in Colorado.  We made these while camping in Colorado in August – they were quick, easy and delicious. Don’t think you can ask for much more than that after a long day on the trail.

Camp Recipes: Spicy Soft Tacos


  • 1 lb lean ground hamburger or turkey meat

  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • Soft tortillas
  • Salsa (optional)
  • Cheese (optional)
  • Sour Cream (optional)


  1. In a dutch oven or any kind of camp cooking skillet, brown the hamburger or taco meat. Drain if there is a lot of excess fat or grease.
  2. Coat the meat with taco seasoning. Stir in water to dilute the seasoning mix with the meat.
  3. Mix in black beans and green chilies. Cook until beans are heated through.
  4. Dish onto tortillas and serve with your favorite taco toppings.
