There’s not many things that can fill a hunger gap like the good old burrito. Take all of your favourite nutritional foods, smush them into a convenient to handle tortilla wrapped package, and send that density south to recharge your batteries and keep you shredding the trails for a few more k’s.
Trying to freeze dry an entire burrito is out of the question, for now at least, but you can still have your favourite Mexican meal in the middle of nowhere by packing all of that fresh, light stuff, supplemented with freeze dried beef and rice courtesy of us here at Back Country Cuisine.
The Outback Burrito is a tried and true recipe that marries the best of both worlds of fresh and freeze dried food. Give it a crack on your next trip and use it for inspiration to create your own hybrid meals to keep things fun in your own outdoor kitchen.
Time: Approximately 20 minutes
Tip: On a multi-day hike you can take a spice kit, which you can use for several different meals. These come in handy when trying to cook with different flavours, carrying less on your back.
When not planning to use all beef and rice from packet, empty the remaining quantity into a container and use the Back Country Cuisine recyclable pouch to cook the ingredients.
