Outhouse Chili Recipe

8-inch Dutch oven
8 briquettes on the lid
8 briquettes on the bottom
Baking time: 20 minutes at 350°

½ cup Walla Walla sweet onion (diced)
1 can chili con carne (your choice of mild, medium, or hot)
1 cup grated cheese (sharp cheddar)


Simply pour can of chili into oven and add diced onion with half of the cheese. Stir to evenly distribute onion and cheese.

Place lid with 8 briquettes on top and 8 briquettes on bottom. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with remainder of cheese placed on top. Additional sliced onion may be desired. Alternative: allow briquettes to burn out while the chili continues to simmer; the simmered chili takes on the sharp cheddar and sweet onion flavor.

Note: This is a good, quick, hot meal. Beware of certain smells coming from fellow campers.
