Camp Cooker Fajita Recipe

Pie Iron Fajita Recipe

I have a tasty camp cooker fajita recipe for you today!  Pretty much anything cooked in a camp cooker is delicious in my opinion. 

This Camp Cooker Fajita Recipe is no different.  It combines the simplicity of making a tortilla pocket with the tasty flavours of steak, bell peppers and melty cheese.

Too busy to make this right away?! Pin it for later!  Pin this recipe to your favorite camping board on Pinterest and it’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready.

I like to use leftovers from this amazing Tinfoil Packet Fajita recipe to fill these pockets but today I have given you the directions to make this camping meal from start to finish.  With a little bit of meal planning you can make this recipe even quicker to create with leftovers from the previous day.

Over the years I have experimented and tried out pretty much every camping tool known to woman.  I love to cook and make mouth watering food while we are camping in the wilderness.  Here are some of my favorite products to use while camping.

Tips for cooking with a camp cooker:

  • When cooking with a camp cooker, begin by applying non stick cooking spray or oil to the inside of both cooking plates.   This step is important so that your delicious meal doesn’t stick to the plates and burn.
  • Place your recipe ingredients into the cooker before closing and latching it.
  • Cook the recipe over an open fire. We recommend placing the cooker over the fire for two minutes before unlatching, checking for doneness and flipping the cooker over to cook the other side.
  • Use caution when handling both the metal latch and handles as they can become hot while cooking.

Look at the cheese just oozing out of this tortilla pocket!  So yummy!  I love using tortillas in this recipe instead of bread because they let the flavours of the filling really stand out.

Tips for camping meal preparation:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers. These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size freezer bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Nacho Dip recipes are some of our favorites.
  • Use my blank printable meal plan or camping meal plans to help organize your next trip.
