"We love to make these tacos in our pie irons over the open fire when we are camping. I think they are better than real tacos!"

  1. Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to crumble, until browned. Pour off excess fat, and mix in the taco seasoning according to package directions.
  2. Spray the inside of a pie iron with cooking spray, and place a corn tortilla on one side. Place a scoop of ground beef on top of the tortilla, sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese, and chopped onion. Finally, place another tortilla on top, and close the pie iron.
  3. Cook the taco over the moderate coals of a campfire until the tortillas have crisped and browned, and the taco is hot in the center. Serve with lettuce, tomato, salsa, and sour cream. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

I can't wait to have these tomorrow when we go camping! I tried them with the pie iron but over an open flame on the stove...just to make sure it would work before I lug it all to the campground. They are delicious! I subbed flour for corn tortillas and omitted the onion. I've found a new favorite camping food! :) ****Update**** I made these camping yesterday and they we SO good! My husband couldn't believe how good they turned out...I think he was a little leery of "campfire tacos." I had precooked the beef at home so all I had to do was assemble and cook once we started our campfire. I'm sure they'll be requested whenever we camp from now on! :)


These were awesome. We always have a pie iron meal when camping and have tried many different sandwiches and treats but I have to say after having these, we have a new favorite.


I'm not a big fan of "traditional" mountain pies, so I was thrilled to find this recipe. I browned and seasoned the beef before we headed camping so all we had to do was make the mountain pies. We kept it really simple and cooked w/the meat & cheese and then served w/FF sour cream.
