Happy Hour Camping Nachos

Written by

On more than a few occasions, friends we met earlier in the day while walking our dog Sparky, show up at our door for a few cold ones. It’s always a great idea to have on hand a few ingredients to make some snacks for when the unexpected friends show up at your campsite! This recipe for One Pot Camping Nachos has been a happy hour classic among our friends who love Tex-Mex. What better way to end the day than with good friends, conversation, a cold beer, warm campfire and a plate of cheesy nachos!

I love preparing food outside and be a part of the group fun, rather than inside the RV alone. A dutch oven is a great option (or cast iron skillet), for making these nachos. I hope you and your newly found friends enjoy this recipe as much as we have.
