Easy Bean Dip

The family didn’t waste any time attacking this simple camping dip. I love seeing them enjoy time around the picnic table together and I especially love these simple-to-make treats. This recipe is perfect for summer nights and camping trips.

This is the good old-fashioned comfort food kind of yummy. I remember looking forward to the meals around the campfire. My mom always had the most delicious camping recipes. We don’t go camping that often, anymore, but it’s still fun to enjoy the same style of food on the grill.
