No Cook Tacos

Try these delicious tacos when you’re trekking without a stove or traveling in an area with a strict fire ban.  ‘Fire Ban Tacos’ are extremely easy to make, they have a long shelf life for backcountry travel, and they’re lightweight.  This is a fantastic meal for many outdoor activities and a great option for no cook recipes.

How to make stovelesss backcountry tacos

The key to successful ‘Fire Ban Tacos’ is a soft jerky.  You don’t want overly dry meats that you have to struggle to bite through.  I’m a big fan of Patagonia Provisions Buffalo Jerky, its very tender and has great flavor.  Also, use a flour tortilla when its cold outside, because corn tortillas fall apart if not warm.  Top Fire Ban Tacos with B.Redi Salsa’s ultra lightweight authentic dehydrated salsa!

Where to find park information

Before you head out on the trail, get educated about the journey that lies ahead with Pocket Ranger mobile app.  Pocket Ranger provides general information on State and National parks, along with GPS location maps and weather alerts.  Always be prepared when heading into the backcountry, and be in the know before you go!
