Camping in Payson + Green Chile Stew

We went camping this past weekend. Gross but true, I have never had such few things to wash after a weekend trip away! Clothes aside, if you saw all the equipment we needed for this trip, you would think we were actually moving into the wilderness for two weeks, rather than just two days.

This is the second camping trip in a month. We are clearly going through a camping phase. I like the idea of getting away, nature, snacks, and wine. But that lasts for about two hours and then I look around and think, okay what now? I really can't sit still sometimes. I also don't like longer than two days.

Furthermore we haven't invested in camping equipment except for what my husband has. By the way, did I mention it is backpacking equipment? Yeah, no fitting an air mattress into a backpacking tent. 

We went with some friends. It was enjoyable to make meals for each other, play games, sit by the fire, shoot at targets, and explore a lake.

I was in charge of making some meals. I kept it simple stupid and dinner one night ended up being some Green Chile Stew and Smores. Did I take any pictures of my amazing stew? No of course not, but I did snap a few of us having a good time!
Look dad, that is my bulls eye!

And then here is an amazing stew for you to make at home or easy to make on a camping stove! Bonus, there was some left over for us so I didn't have to worry about dinner when I got home from the camping weekend!


2 pounds of beef chuck roast, cubed
1 onion, chopped
4 green chiles, chopped
1 can of Rotel
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 can of beef broth
2 potatoes, peeled and diced


Lightly oil the bottom of a stock pot. Add beef and onions and cook until onions translucent.

Add green chile, Rotel, cumin, garlic salt, and beef broth. Let simmer for an hour.

Add potatoes and simmer for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are done.

Easy, peasy, green chile squeezy!
What is your favorite dinner to make while camping?
