  • 1/4 cup cooked black beans

  • 4 medium-sized flour tortillas

Preparation before Camping:

To ensure a smooth camping breakfast experience, some preparation can be done in advance:

  1. For both versions, whisk the eggs, salt, and pepper together in a spill-proof container or a resealable plastic bag. Store it in your cooler.
  2. If you prefer, precook the bacon or sausage for the meat version and store it in a separate container in the cooler.
  3. Dice and chop the vegetables for both versions and store them in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags.

Camping Cooking Instructions:

  1. Start by preparing your campfire or camp stove to medium heat.
  2. Using a skillet or a non-stick pan, add a little cooking oil or non-stick spray.
  3. For the meat version, cook the diced bacon or sausage until it’s crispy and then add the diced bell peppers and onions. For the veggie version, sauté the diced bell peppers and onions until they are slightly tender.
  4. Pour the whisked egg mixture into the skillet, allowing it to cook and scramble with the cooked meat or vegetables.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the eggs, allowing it to melt and create a luscious blanket of flavor.
  6. Warm the flour tortillas over the campfire or camp stove for a few seconds on each side to make them pliable and easy to fold.
  7. Spoon the cooked egg and meat or vegetable mixture onto the center of each tortilla.
  8. Roll up the tortillas, tucking in the ends to create compact and portable breakfast burritos.

Prepare to Take Camping:

For easy camping preparation, store the precooked meat (if using the meat version) and chopped vegetables in separate containers. Transport the whisked egg mixture in a spill-proof container or resealable plastic bag. Pack the shredded cheese and tortillas separately to keep them fresh. Assemble the burritos at the campsite, and they’ll be ready to devour in no time!
