Double down to beat the winter chill with a steaming bowl of hot chili. The beauty of this recipe is the ability to tailor it to suit a variety of diets and taste preferences.

a simple recipe for chili on the trail - 1 can cattle drive chili with beans- one small can Ortega green chili-one diced onion- and salsa your favorite brand. you will get more than

one meal from this so the best thing to do is mix them all together at home and put one serving in a plastic bag and freeze it. while you are hiking it will defrost - just heat and eat.

add only the amount of green chili that you like not the whole can and you can add some hot sauce like what taco bell has in little packets on the trail. if you want to go nuts add a little

packets of Fritos after it is cooked.
