This is the chili we brought for the 1st night,
1 cup dehydrated pinto beans
1 cup dehydrated kidney beans
8 oz dehydrated salsa (see below)
1 cup dried TVP
1 Package Taco Seasoning Mix (or Chili)
5 cups water
Using a dehydrator or your oven, dehydrate the beans and the salsa. For the salsa, I put mine on a plate and it took a while, but it eventually turned into a leather that you could tear into pieces. Add the beans, salsa, and TVP together and store for packing.
At Camp: When you get to camp, add all ingredients together and cook for 15 minutes.
(I suppose you could add the seasoning at home, but I added it at camp to prevent losing some in transit from bag to bag.)
