15 Fun Camping Meals and Snack Ideas

Cheater Tex-Mex Chips N’ Dip

I’d like to thank my sister for this fabulous camping recipe because I truly cannot remember the last time we ate appetizers while camping. These babies were whipped up after a long afternoon of fishing and hanging around the beach in the gorgeous sunshine that we had at the lake last weekend. We soon realized shortly after reaching our campsite that we had completely skipped lunch while lounging in the sun and our rumbling stomachs roared their disapproval over this fact.

Got any others you would like to add to the list?
