Start your campfire and set up the Dutch oven for cooking. Try fire sticks to get your campfire started.

Use a grill grate or a hanging tripod for cooking in your Dutch oven. If you are cooking with fire restriction conditions, use a propane camp stove as the heat source. 

Brown the meat In a Dutch oven over medium heat, combine these ingredients and cook until turkey is browned

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey

Add broth and beans, simmer another 20 minutes
Add the chicken broth and beans, bring to boil

  • 1 32-ounce carton chicken broth
  • 3 15-ounce cans white beans, drained and rinsed (I like cannellini beans but use your favorite)

Long “Tweezers” helps you stay a safe distance from the campfire while adjusting it for cooking temperature.

Stir in cheese and add toppings, just before serving

  • 2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese (stir most of this into the chili but reserve some for each bowl)
  • Optional toppings
    • Cilantro
    • Jalapeno slices
    • Sour cream

This chili recipe is easily adaptable to a camp stove if you are dealing with fire restrictions. We used this Coleman Eventemp 3 Burner Propane Stove for this recipe and love that it has a “bridge burner” connecting the two traditionally placed burners. It can handle 2 large or 3 smaller pots!

When preparing your campfire for cooking, I like to use “tweezers” to arrange the campfire logs and coals. Tweezers provide more control than just using a fire poker or shovel. You’ll want to keep your campfire flames roaring to keep you warm and your Hot Italian Sausage Soup Recipe on schedule for your hungry campers.

Camp cooking tip: Don’t burn yourself while stirring and checking on your chili! If you don’t already have a lifter, you will want to get one! These things are awesome! Dutch oven lid lifter allows you to stay a safe distance from the hot campfire while removing the hot cast iron lid from your Dutch oven while it is still cooking over the campfire.

If you are cooking this recipe in a remote camping environment without amenities like campfire rings with racks, don’t worry, you have options. Using a camp Dutch oven tripod allows you to easily cook over a campfire by hanging your oven right over the hot fire. A hanging oven can have a tenancy to swing a bit while you are stirring so be cautious when cooking hot liquids over a hot campfire.

When you remove your Dutch oven lid to stir your chili, have a “landing pad” ready for the lid. There is nothing worse than setting it directly on the ground and picking up dirt and rocks. Using a camp Dutch oven lid stand allows you to keep you hot cast iron Dutch oven lid off the ground and clean while cooking your camp meals.
