Vegetable oil for greasing Dutch oven
1 (12-ounce) package tortilla chips
2 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (19-ounce) can green enchilada sauce
1 (16-ounce) container sour cream
1 (1-ounce) package ranch dip mix

3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Required Equipment:
14-inch camp Dutch oven
Heavy-duty aluminum foil

Preparation at Camp:
1. Prepare 32 coals for the Dutch oven.

2. Line oven with aluminum foil then grease the foil with a little vegetable oil.

3. Lay a third of the tortilla chips over the bottom of the oven.

4. Pour only about one-third of each of the pinto beans (about 2/3 of a single can), enchilada sauce, sour cream, ranch dip mix, olives (about 2/3 of a single can), shredded chicken, and cheese over the top of the chips.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 twice more, using up all remaining ingredients.

6. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes using 21 coals on the lid and 11 underneath the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.


  1. OMG! That does not look anything like the real Enchiladas! that’s just a tortilla dough ball miss! this is demeaning to Mexican food, this is not the way an Enchilada is done

  2. This looks and sounds delicious. One question though. I have a 12 inch oven. Any changes I might wanna make so it works in my oven?

    • Chad – Well, with a 12 inch Dutch oven, you might want to cut the ingredients and watch the time you leave it in the coals. 25 minutes should be plenty of time as long as you’ve pre-cooked the chicken.

  3. Badly named. I’d call this some sort of nachos.
    Also, did we need the Tyson ad (and that ingredient increases the cost)?

  4. Saw this recepie when it was posted and made it on our Campout this weekend! It was absolutely AMAZING! Would deffenly recommend it to anyone!
