Foil Packet Nachos

For anyone that loves a fat plate of nachos, the experience gets kicked up a notch when you’re eating this favorite dish by a fire (watch out for the birds, as they’re likely eyeing your nachos, too). These nachos are one of the easiest campfire foil recipes to make and even easier to eat.


  • Tortilla chips
  • ½ lb ground beef
  • A packet of taco seasoning
  • 14-oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 4.5-oz. can green chiles
  • 14-oz. can black beans
  • ½ diced onion
  • 2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Cilantro for garnish


  1. Brown beef in a skillet with taco seasoning. When almost brown, add diced tomatoes and green chiles.
  2. Create rectangles with your foil and add a layer of chips to each.
  3. Top chips with the beef mixture, divided among the foil packets.
  4. Loosely add a top foil layer with a few holes to allow steam to release.
  5. Place a few inches above coals and cook for 12-15 minutes.
