This is a favorite camping food:

Taco Rice 

1 med. onion, minced
1 head garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tbs paprika
1/2 t cumin
1 Tbs chili powder
4 carrots, peeled and diced
1 can (14oz) diced toms (I recommend Muir Glen with garlic and basil)
1 cup water
1 can corn, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained
2 sm zucchini, sliced into 1/2" rounds and then cut in half
1/2 c shredded ff cheese (I like something really sharp)
2 cups rice, cooked (brown is good, but I usually use white
when camping because it cooks faster)

Slowly brown onions in a very small amt water or water/stock.  When
onion are soft and smell wonderful, add garlic and spices.  Cook for a
few minutes stirring everything around. Add can toms, carrots, water.
Let simmer gently until carrots have softened slightly (5 minutes).
Add corn and zucs, let simmer another 10 minutes.  Sauce should
thicken to spooning consistency.  Add kidney beans, remove from heat
and spoon over rice.  Top with cheese.  Serves about 6.  Very popular
with my kids and their assorted camping guests.
