One of my favorite parts of camping is getting to try out a new recipe over the open fire. We made these Pizza Nachos during a camping trip to Point Mugu a few weeks ago. We got to eat them by the ocean at sunset, while dolphins and whales played. Seriously, California is the best state.
I love these as a camping recipe because you can do most of the prep at home then throw it together at the campsite with minimal dishes. Very easy. If you aren’t camping, you could also make this in the oven at home (just pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees).
Campfire Pizza Nachos Recipe
Garlic Cream Sauce Ingredients:
- 1.5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2-3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
- ½ cups Heavy Cream
- ¼ cup Milk
- Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 Bag of Tortilla Chips
- ½ cups Garlic Cream Sauce (recipe below)
- ¼ cups Onion, diced
- ½ cups Pepperoni, cut into quarters
- ½ cups Black Olives, sliced
- ½ whole Bell Pepper, diced
- 2 Green Onions, sliced
- 1 cup Colby-Jack Cheese, Shredded
Garlic Cream Sauce: Melt the butter and olive oil in a sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, add the minced garlic. Stir. After a minute or two, add in the cream and milk. Stir until it comes to a boil. Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and cheese. Stir until sauce has thickened. Once it has thickened, remove from fire and set aside.
Nachos: Grab your cast iron skillet and add the tortilla chips. Drizzle the garlic cream sauce all over the chips.
Top with the onions, pepperoni, olives, bell pepper, and colby jack cheese. The best approached is to layer it between tortilla chips so every bit gets plenty of toppings.
Place over the open fire and cover. Cook until the cheese is nice and bubbly and the veggies are warm, about 5-8 minutes.
