This recipe I developed yesterday. Okra isn't pretty common but can be fun to play with!


Spicy Cheesy Beans and Rice


* 1⁄2 c instant rice
* 1⁄4 c cooked and dehydrated kidney beans
* 1⁄4 c freeze dried okra
* 2 T cheddar cheese powder
* 1 T dry milk
* 1 pkt tabasco sauce
* 1 T olive oil (1 packet)
* 1 c water


At home:
Pack the dry ingredients in a sandwich or quart freezer bag. Tuck the Tabasco and olive oil packets with it.

In camp:
FBC method:
Add the oil and near boiling water to the bag. Stir well, seal tightly and put in a FBC cozy for 15 minutes. Stir in the Tabasco sauce.

Insulated mug method:
Add the dry ingredients, oil and boiling water to your insulated mug. Stir well, cover tightly and let sit for 15 minutes. Stir in the Tabasco sauce.

One pot method:
Bring the water and oil to a boil, add in the dry ingredients. Take off the stove, cover tightly and let sit for 10 minutes. Stir in the Tabasco sauce. In cool temperatures use a pot cozy.
