Camping Trip Food (with little to no cooking)

tastyjon | Sep 20, 200601:38 AM     10

I'm on a 3 day trip in AZ this weekend and wanted to ask for ideas on what to bring. Since it's still quite warm here, spoilage is an issue. I did search some other camping threads and there were some nice recipes, but I'm not sure about how well we can keep stuff frozen/chilled. By the 3rd day, the chicken might be a litte suspect!

We can drive to the campsite, so packing weight isn't too much of an issue. I know some granola and jerky would work, but I want to kick it up a notch. For example... foil packets of Indian food (sold at specialty markets, Trader Joes, etc.) seem like an interesting idea. They can be warmed in hot water. Similarly, I've been enjoying the tuna and other fish now sold in foil packs. No need to be kept in a fridge, though I'm not sure what to do with them in the wild (I guess bring a one-time use jar of mayo) and make something.

Any other thoughts on easy-cook meal ideas? Thanks!
