ReInventable Leftovers Creating Easy Camp Meals For Pairs

Ok, so “re-inventable” is a word I use to describe how I make some of our favorite family-sized meals when I am camping with only one other person.

My husband HATES LEFTOVERS unless I re-invent them into something different for the second go-round.

Here’s how I make some of our most beloved recipes and serve them as two different meals.


Campfire Dutch Oven Chili Recipe

There are a couple of ways to make one of the most beloved winter camping recipes into a meal for two. You can prepare this chili as a make ahead dinner and freeze it in portion sizes with two servings … then, just take the amount you need to the campsite, defrost and reheat for a quick meal.

Alternatively, you can make the entire recipe at the campsite and eat bowls of chili the first night then re-invent the leftovers into chili-mac, chili dogs, chili burritos or chili-topped eggs for breakfast that can be served on plates or wrapped in tortillas for breakfast burritos.
