One of the popular meals we serve at our family camp outs is “Taco in a Bag”.  It’s easy to make, no mess and the kids love it.  Adults love it too.  If you don’t have a camping grill yet, I encourage you to check out some camping grills and cook in style.  Camping grills like this one are inexpensive, reliable and you will enjoy cooking and grilling in the outdoors with the entire family or group of friends for years to come.  A great, kid-friendly meal you can make outdoors with your camping grill is the “Taco in a bag”.  Adults love Taco in a bag too.  Listed below are the ingredients and directions.
