4. Cook directly on flame until cheese is melted and food is warm all the way through.
5. Eat with salsa, your fingers, and directly from the tray.



Potato and Sausage Breakfast Tacos
*not gonna lie here, this was not my original breakfast recipe but it ended up being what we cooked*
1. Cook breakfast sausage and chopped potato in large cast iron pan until browned. This will take about 20 minutes.

Pinto Beans + Sausage
*We are bad bloggers and didn't grab a photo of these! Grr. We will do better next time*

2. The next day, pour softened beans into a cast iron pan/dutch oven with diced sausage link.
3. Add chopped onion and water to mixture and place directly above flame.
