Fire-Roasted Nachos

Fire-Roasted Nachos

Let your hungry campers fend for themselves (with adult supervision, of course) by offering a dish they can assemble and cook over a campfire or grill. Just have each camper collect a stick that's sturdy and not too dry.



  • 4 3/8-inch disposable aluminum pie pan
  • 1/2 cup tortilla chips
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar or Monterey Jack
  • Toppings, such as diced tomatoes and bell peppers, sliced jalapeƱos, and black beans
  • 12- by 16-inch piece of foil
  • Salsa (optional)


  1. Let the kids combine all the ingredients in their pan. Then seal it in foil (a double layer if you're cooking over an open flame) as shown, folding over the extra foil at the top to make a sturdy handle to poke a stick or tongs through.
  2. Hold the packet over a campfire or set it directly on a grill to melt the cheese, about 10 minutes. Let the pack cool briefly, then open it carefully. Serve with salsa, if desired.
