This Recipe will make 1+ Large Trays*


  1. Cook the hamburger, if using fresh Onions and Peppers, add to meat while cooking.
  2. Drain the hamburger, and rinse thoroughly with hot water to remove as much grease as possible. 
  3. Add Rotel, pinto beans, chicken broth powder(if not using chicken broth), taco seasoning, and water. (If using Freeze Dried Onions and Peppers add now) 
  4. Stir, and then cook until hot (you can do this on the stove or in a crock pot. 
  5. Cool, and then pour into lined trays, I would pre-freeze before going into the freeze dryer.
  6. Freeze Dry 
  7. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)
