Summer is time for the outdoors. The days are getting longer, the water’s getting warmer, and campfires burn brighter. While camping grills are a great way to prepare food out in nature, nothing can replace the authentic smokiness that a bonfire provides. To make the most of your summer trips, we’ve put together our top 12 campfire recipes you need to try this summer.

1. Campfire Berry-Peach Cobbler

If you’re anything like us, you like to start with dessert first. This campfire berry-peach cobbler needs just a handful of pantry staple ingredients, some fresh fruit, and prepares in a single skillet. If you aren’t a dan of the chosen fruits, or they aren’t in season in your region, feel free to spice up this dish with your personal favorites!

2. Foil Pack Chicken Nachos

Foil pack meals are an excellent choice for any camper who hates battling with cleanup. This quick, simple foil pack nacho recipe is sure to please even the pickiest eaters, with absolutely no cooking equipment required.

3. Campfire S’mores Nachos

We’ve covered the traditional savory nachos, but have you ever experimented with dessert nachos? No campfire would be complete without s’mores, and while the traditional s’mores are always a fan favorite, this baked “nacho tray” style changes up the game for a refreshing twist! All that’s needed is marshmallows, graham crackers, your choice of chocolate, and any other sweet treats you can think of. Throw everything in an aluminum baking tray and you’re on route to flavortown!

Moving back to another foil pack recipe, this cilantro lime shrimp pack is perfect for a light, easy, summer campfire! Served with rice or on a tortilla, this dish cooks up in just a few short minutes to satisfy those cravings.

5. Pie Iron Pizza Pockets

Pie irons are an incredible piece of campfire cooking equipment, if you don’t have one already, we highly recommend picking one up! To create these tasty cheesy pie iron pizza pockets, all you need is dough or a soft bread and your favorite pizza toppings. Put it all together and in minutes you’ll have an extremely crispy pizza pocket full of ooey-gooey goodness!

6. Skillet Spinach-Artichoke Dip with Fire-Roasted Bread

Spinach and artichoke dip is a staple appetizer and well known for its garlic-cheesy decadence.
