Marshall’s Favorite Burritos

Ingredients:

1 cup instant rice (brown or white)

6 oz. dehydrated refried beans

7 oz. cooked chicken in a sealed, no-drain package (find it near tuna in the store)

1 package taco seasoning (OR 2 tsp. chili powder, 2 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. oregano, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder)

2 handfuls shredded cheese

4 tortillas

Pre-trip Prep

In a sealable bag, combine rice, beans, and taco seasoning.

In a separate sealable bag, store shredded cheese.

In another sealable bag, roll and store tortillas. 

Place the 3 sealed bags and bag of chicken in a plastic bag labeled ‘Burrito Meal’.

How to prepare on trail

Boil ~2 1/2 cups water in pot over camp stove (add a bit more water as needed, based on altitude). Since it’s being boiled, the water doesn’t necessarily need to be filtered/purified, however if you’ll be transporting the water in your drinking bottle, be sure to filter/purify so as to not risk contaminating your bottle. 

When water boils, pour in bag of dry goods (rice, beans, seasoning) and bag of chicken.

Stir constantly to avoid burning. Cook for 5 minutes.

Spread burrito mixture on tortillas, and top with shredded cheese. 

Serves 2 hungry hikers.

1/2 cup dry milk (find it in the baking section of the store)

15 oz. plastic bottle pizza sauce

4 cups shredded cheese

1 package turkey pepperoni
