Campfire Cooking: Mexican Breakfast Tortillas

This campfire recipe is perfect for longer camping trips because you don’t need to eat it on the first day. It provides you with the protein and hearty nutrition you need to fuel your fun.

Avocado is the perfect camping food. Each 3.5 oz (100g) serving is packed with tons of nutrition like 26% of your daily intake of Vitamin K, 14% of  your Vitamin B5 and more potassium than you can shake a banana at.

What you Need:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 small red onion (chopped)
  • 1 medium tomato (chopped)
  • 1 small green chili (chopped)
  • 1 avocado (sliced)
  • tortillas
  • cilantro (optional)


In a camping pot or skillet heat the oil and fry the onions until translucent. Add the chili and tomato and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat well. Pour the eggs into your pot or skillet and scramble until done.

Spoon the eggs onto the tortillas and serve immediately topped with avocado slices and cilantro (optional). Serves 4.


  • Eggs don’t need to be refrigerated to stay fresh. Use irradiated eggs if you are concerned about salmonella.
  • Crack the eggs right into your pot or skillet if you don’t want to take a bowl for mixing.
  • Spoon these eggs into a wrap and enjoy some breakfast burrito action.
  • Once you’ve dished up your eggs, pour some water into your pot or skillet and put it back on the fire so washing up with be a breeze.
  • Take an unripe tomato and avocado with you so they will ripen over the course of your trip.
  • Choose your own adventure burrito: Add garlic, salt and pepper, salsa, guacamole, refried beans or chorizo.
