Survival Campfire Burritos

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This is a great way to feed a crew of people in a survival cooking situation.   campfire Burritos are easy to prepare, don’t require lots of water for cleanup and are generally a crowd pleasing dish.

This is a dish that can easily be made from most ingredients in an American fridge.  Remember you only have about 48 hours after the power goes out in an emergency or disaster to cook up all the food in a fridge before it goes bad and this is a great way to turn lots of those  ingredients into a delicious and hearty meal for many.

Use up any vegetables that you have, that need to be kept fresh and will go bad  first.  Vegies such as lettuces, onions, peppers, radishes and even sliced carrots can be worked into this dish.     You can also use just about any type of heat source to cook the dish (although it is recommended to over cook all the meat first, for safety sake.)





  • 1 pound of hamburger or dices chicken or even pork
  • 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning, or mix your own with paprika, chill powder, salt and or garlic powder.   Red pepper flack packets that come with delivery Pizza are also a great source for hot spices for taco seasoning
  • 2 cup cooked white rice (use more rice if you have less meat and even add beans, canned or bagged to stretch the burrito filling if need be)
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • ¼ cup salsa verde (or small salsa packets from  a restaurant bin)
  • 4-10 burrito-sized flour tortillas (10”)
  • ½ cup pico de gallo
  • 4-10 foil sheets

  3. Fill each flour tortilla with ¼ of the taco meat, rice, cheese and salsa.
  4. Place in the coals of a campfire or on a BBQ grill over semi-high heat, cook about 3-4 minutes, then flip packet over and continue cooking for 3 additional minutes. (cook the hamburger or chicken first then add to the burrito.
