Bean Burritos with Chipotle Peppers

“Glamping”– or, Glamour Camping– is the perfect way to enjoy time ‘with nature,’ while still feeling happy and full at the end of the day.  This series of “Glamping” recipes will focus on cooking outdoors, with recipes as exciting and fulfilling as your camping trip.  

Hello campers, hikers, and adventurers!  If you’re planning on cooking outdoors soon, and want to catch up on any of the ‘Glamping’ recipes from my trip Out West, click here!  This past summer, when I wasn’t hiking into canyons and sleeping under the stars, I was eating.  We cooked most of our own food along our route, but I found out something about campground cooking– it’s HOT.  Standing over a campfire or camp-stove to prepare a meal was just fine in the mountains of Yellowstone, but when we got to the desert in Utah, I was over it.  I wanted something fast, with minimal heat exposure, so that I could go dive into a pool.  The solution to my dinner dilemma?  Burritos.  These Bean Burritos with Chipotle Peppers are flavorful, protein-packed, and are ready start-to-finish in about 10 minutes.  Best of all, only a few minutes are spent standing over the heat.

As a solution to these busy nights, I like to have a few recipes on hand that take 20 minutes or less to prepare, start to finish.  That’s right, in the time that it would take to pre-heat the oven and cook a frozen pizza, I can instead be chowing down on a healthful, home-cooked meal!  One of my favorite fast meal options is Spicy Shrimp and Guacamole.
