Camping Recipe treasure chest

Attention Mods - can this be posted as a sticky so it's easier to find?

I'm getting tired of hot dogs, burger helper, canned spaghetti and spam so I'm looking for ideas for other on the road options. There are recipes all over the forum for camping cooking recipes but you need to search page by page.

How about they all get posted in one place so they're easier to find? If you've already posted a recipe and want to past a link to it instead of rewriting it, that works. I checked the library and there's nothing there for a central recipe repository so maybe this will work.

Strut your stuff, brag about what you cook in your RV and share it with the rest of us!

I'll start - old family recipe from Cuba -

Picadillo (kind of a Cuban version of chili - this isn't the only recipe that exists, just mine - and you only need one frying pan to make it)

1 1/2lb ground beef (or turkey if you prefer)
1 large onion
6 cloves garlic
1 large potato
2 lunch box size boxes of raisins (about 1/2 a cup)
1/2 cup spanish olives - either whole or salad type
1/2 teaspoon ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to your taste + or -)
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 bay leaf
(adjust dried spices to your taste)
1 can of tomato sauce (8 oz size) or can of crushed tomatoes - your choice

Chop the onion and garlic and sweat them in olive oil in a large frying pan. Remove when translucent and place into a bowl temporarily.

Brown the ground beef (turkey) and drain. While the ground meat is browning peel the potato and cut up into 1/2" size cubes.

Return the onion garlic mixture into the cooked ground beef in the frying pan. Add the cubed potatoes, the spices, raisins, olives and tomato sauce/tomatoes and 2 tomato sauce cans (16 oz) of water. Stir well and simmer until the mixture starts to thicken. It's ready when it's thicker than chili but not all dried out.

Serve over white or brown rice. Leftovers are great for a quick microwave lunch.
