This poor man's stew is the easiest dump & cook meal

Print this recipe
This is the recipe that treads the line between “I barely know how to cook” and “incredible memories of summers camping and tailgating.” For me, it’s this -- or hot dog kebabs. The great news is you can make new memories with this dish almost anywhere; it’s so easy and requires so few ingredients and dishes, you can almost always bring it along.
The key here is simple: Start cooking 10 minutes after everyone says they’re really hungry. Then throw everything into a pot and heat it over a stove, campfire or barbecue. Bonus: You won’t have any dishes to do because everyone will have licked them clean!
