Camping Mac n' Cheese is super quick, so easy, and only uses one pot! Have an incredible dinner in the great outdoors in under 10 minutes!
  • 16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 ounce can diced green chilies, drained
  • 10 ounce can evaporated milk (not condensed milk)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions (I cooked mine prior to our trip and dressed with a little olive oil to prevent sticking)
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cup tortilla chips, crushed (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, roughy chopped (optional)
  1. Heat the cheese, green chilies, evaporated milk, onion, cumin, and salt, over low heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese is melted.
  2. Add the macaroni and stir to combine. Once the pasta is heated through, incorporate the tomatoes. Portion into bowls, sprinkle with crushed tortilla chips and cilantro, serve and enjoy!
To do while at home:
Cook the pasta and store in tupperware
Chop the onions and tomatoes and place into separate zip-tops bags
Grate the cheese, or better yet... buy it already grated
Portion out the cumin and salt and place into one bag.
* 10 minute time is based on prepping these ingredients prior to your camping trip.
