Campfire Stew

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by anly1970

This is a meal that we used to eat a lot as kids, because it was inexpensive. My mother originally learned it from the Girl Scouts. The sodium can be a little high, but feel free to try one of the lower sodium vegetable soups. Also, instead of making the mashed potatoes from scratch, I now use the Ore-Ida steam and Mash. What a time saver!
