3 Grilling Recipes To Try On Your Next Camping Trip
Elote (Grilled Mexican Street Corn)

An Elote is essentially grilled corn on the cob smothered in cheese, mayo, sour cream, chile powder, and lime. This amazing side dish is a combination of flavors–sweet, salty, and spicy–that come together to take corn to an over-the-top experience.

For 6 servings:

1. Mix half a cup of mayonnaise with half a cup of sour cream

2. Grill 6 shucked corn, turning often until slightly charred all over

3. Brush each corn with mayonnaise/sour cream mixture and sprinkle with Clásico Seasoning or Tajín Clásico Low Sodium Seasoning, grated cotija cheese, and freshly chopped cilantro

4. Serve warm

Not Your Average Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Spruce that boring grilled cheese sandwich with this impressive Grilled Pesto and Turkey Grilled Cheese Masterpiece! It makes easy camping lunches or quick dinners that are fast and almost gourmet!

For each gourmet masterpiece:

1. Butter one side of each slice of sourdough bread with butter. Then spread premade pesto, like Prego Basil Pesto, on the non-buttered side.

2. Lay the first slice of bread butter-side down on your grill/foil/pan

3. Top with roasted turkey, provolone cheese, and fresh basil leaves, and finish with the second slice of sourdough bread, butter-side out

4. Heat until the bread is toasted and the cheese has started to melt. Then flip to toast the other side.

Cinnamon Rolls in Oranges

Perhaps the most unique and fun of the grilling recipes requires cooking cinnamon roll dough like those you would find in a tube of Pillsbury in an empty orange shell. The orange keeps the cinnamon roll moist and creates a neat dish to scoop out the goodness when ready.

To make:

1. Slice the tops off your oranges and scoop out the insides

2. Push one cinnamon roll dough into each hollowed-out orange

3. Replace the top on the orange and wrap it tightly in foil

4. Cook over the campfire or on the grill for about 30 minutes or until cooked through

5. After removing from the heat, let cool for 5 minutes before unwrapping the foil, removing the orange top, and drizzling icing onto the roll
