Skillet Nachos

Make snacktime sizzle

Whether you’re cooking over an open fire or using our backyard barbecue, any recipe you can make while enjoying the great outdoors is a good recipe in our book.

What you’ll need:

  • Open campfire or grill
  • 12in skillet
  • Foil

Ingredients:

  • Tortilla chips
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Jalapenos
  • Black olives
  • Pico de gallo
  • Sour cream

Directions:

Line the bottom of your skillet with a layer of tortilla chips and cheese.

Repeat with remaining ingredients. Once you get to the top layer, add in jalapenos and black olives.

Once all of your ingredients are in the skillet, loosely top your skillet with foil and place over your fire on the grill. Keep a close eye on them and remove from heat once the cheese melts.

Top with a pico de gallo and sour cream and enjoy!

Note: You can add any other topper favorites, or leave out the jalapenos if you’re not looking for the added kick.

Stove top S’mores

Kitchen camping done right

Spending more time indoors this summer? Don’t worry, you can still enjoy an old camp favorite in your kitchen!

What you’ll need:

  • Long skewer
  • Medium heat (your stove top can work just as well as a campfire!)

Ingredients:

  • Graham crackers
  • Chocolate bar
  • Jumbo marshmallows

Directions:

Turn on one burner on your stove and let it heat up for a couple minutes.

While you wait for it to warm up, get your graham crackers and chocolate ready.

Once the burner is hot, place your marshmallow on a skewer and hold it over the burner.

Once toasted to your liking, grab your graham cracker and chocolate sandwich and place your marshmallow inside, as you gently remove from the skewer.

Note: flavored marshmallows are a fun twist on an old classic!

Ice Cream in a bag

Shake up something sweet

Rumor has it, ice cream tastes just a little sweeter when you make it yourself! Try this easy alternative to the long, traditional process and enjoy the final product straight from the bag!
