2 Easy Camping Recipes

Spice up your spring camping cookbook with these delicious and easy camping recipes!  As a full-time RVing mom, I’m always looking for meals that are filling, easy to make, and healthy.  Check out these three go-to meals for our lunches and dinners at the campground.


Campfire Stuffed Pepper Hash


  • 5-6 snacking peppers
  • 4 large peppers – green are most commonly used, but we prefer red, yellow, and orange peppers in our home.
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey – you can use beef, but turkey tastes just a good and is a lighter option
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cup cooked rice – use brown if you want a more hearty meal.
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste — I recommend about an 1/8 teaspoon each
  • Colby Jack cheese for topping


  1. Wash all produce.
  2. If cooking over a fire, spread the coals out to give you a medium-high heat and set the iron skillet on the cooking grate. Dice the onion and snacking peppers and add to the skillet with the ground turkey. Cook until no longer pink. Drain the excess oil.
  3. Add the cooked rice to the skillet and stir in garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until thoroughly coated. 
  4. Cut the tops off of the large peppers and remove all seeds. Slice into fourths and set aside. We’ll leave these uncooked for extra crunch!
  5. Spoon the filling onto the fresh cut pepper slices and top with shredded cheese! You can even add sour cream for dipping or a squeeze of lime for some zing!

Campfire Walking Tacos


  • Individual bags of chips — I recommend the following flavors:
    • Doritos Nacho Cheese
    • Fritos
    • Hint of Lime Corn Chips
  • 1lb Ground turkey
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 can black beans
  • 2 cups cooked Spanish rice
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded fiesta blend cheese


  1. Wash all produce.
  2. Dice onion and roughly chop tomato.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the onion and ground turkey.  Cook until no pink remains, drain, and add the taco seasoning packet, setting aside two teaspoons of seasoning. Removed from the heat and set aside.
  4. Heat the beans in a pan, bring to a boil and remove from the heat.
  5. Cook the rice and add the remaining taco seasoning to finished rice.  Stir until thoroughly coated.
  6. Open your bags of chips along the side and top with the meat, beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, and other ingredients to your heart’s content.
