We recently headed out to Northern Alberta for our first camping/fishing trip of the season!  We went out fishing, and didn’t catch a thing, so here, we have our crockpot ready for Traditional Bean Soup (otherwise known as “plan B” for dinner.)



Campfire Blend

I used the traditional bean and poured the ingredients into my slow cooker and plugged it into the motorhome. Add 8 cups fresh water (Some tap water at campsites doesn’t taste very good – so test the water before using.) Cook according to directions.

Then add:

  • 2 hotdogs or smokies pre-cooked and cut into big chunks
  • 1/2 can brown beans
  • 1/2 can niblet corn
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup mild or medium salsa
  • Top with unsalted tortilla chips or nacho cheese tortilla chips (crushed)

No, we didn’t catch anything today, but a kind gentle-fisherman gave us two of his yesterday, since he was over his limit.  We had them for dinner last night… not quite as good as catching them yourself, but still a nice treat.

Ho hum….Think I’ll just stick to ‘soup makin.’
Have a Souptacular weekend!
And ALWAYS have a “PLAN B”
