Who can resist a plate of cheesy nachos? Simply layer tortilla chips, cooked ground beef (or another pre-cooked meat of your choice), shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, a dash of Real Salt Taco Seasoning, and any other toppings you’d like onto a sheet of foil. Wrap it up and cook it over the campfire until the cheese melts and bubbles. Top with sour cream and guacamole for a fully loaded nacho experience.
Lemon Herb Salmon
For a healthy and flavorful meal, try this lemon herb salmon foil pack. Place a fresh salmon fillet on a sheet of foil, and add sliced lemons, fresh herbs like dill and parsley, a bit of Real Salt Organic Lemon Pepper Seasoning, and a drizzle of olive oil. Seal the foil tightly and cook it over the campfire until the fish is flaky and tender. Serve with a side of roasted vegetables for a complete meal.
BBQ Chicken and Veggies
This foil pack combines the smoky flavors of barbecue chicken with colorful vegetables. Cut boneless chicken into bite-sized pieces and toss them with your favorite barbecue sauce.
