Backpacking Food: How to Make Ultimate Trail Taco

How to Make Ultimate Trail Taco

What’s with all of these people enjoying street tacos… We should be enjoying trail tacos! I love tacos, and they are a great recipe to pack along.  Your favorite tortillas slide right in next to your water bladder; dehydrated beans and eggs are lightweight and filling.  There might even be room on top of your pack next to your headlamp for an avocado! 

Add cheese, pre-cooked bacon, some fajita veggies, hot sauce, avocado, and lime to make them your own.  However you want to fill’em, these breakfast tacos are sure to put you on the path to a great day on the trail.  Check out the video below as I roll out of bed and cook up my ultimate trail taco.
