2 cups couscous
1 foil pack chicken (12 oz total)
4 tblspn onion flakes
2 tsp garlic powder
28 oz crushed tomatoes or 1 small can tomato paste
4 oz diced green chiles (1 small can)
1 tblspn chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup grated cheese (any)

Mince the chicken, mix the first 9 ingredients in the pot. Add 2 1/2 cups water, bring to a boil while stirring. Remove from heat, cover, let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese.
Serves 6.
Adding some dried fruit such as raisins, chopped apricots, or even apples adds some sweetness that contrasts nicely with the spicyness.

This can be made ahead and dehydrated. The dried meal will half-fill a 1 gallon Zip-loc bag.

Easy Dutch Oven Camp Stew.

1. 2 lb of stew meat cubed. whatever is inexpensive
2. 1 can of Rotel regular spiced tomatoes. Other varieties can substituted. Warning when Rotel is labeled hot: It is very spicy.
3. 1 large can of diced tomatoes.
4. 1 small bag of frozen pearl onions
5. 2 lbs frozen stew vegetables. Other vegetable can be substituted. Okra is good.

In a 12” dutch oven: Brown stew meat with a little oil. add all other ingredients. Add just enough water to not quite cover. Cook under moderate heat (250-350F) 1.5 to 4 hours. Stew can be ready with higher heat in 1.5 hour, but meat will be tenderer if cooked longer with low heat. Salt & season to taste.
