    Taco soup if you can brown hamberger meat or brown it at home and bring it. It's just bunches of canned things served with chips, cheese, sour cream and more onions.

    Surprisingly...sauerkraut & wienies/smoked sausage (cook it outside so your RV doesn't stink all night). Most people love this because it is homey. Just dump the cans in and use little smokies -- heat for a couple hours and then dig in


    Cubed up or shredded chicken and rice

    There's tons of recipes on food.com

    We have been campers since the mid '70's... can't wait to get on the road again this summer! One of the things we always take with us is a bag of potatoes. And one of our favorite dishes is a potato soup that is like a chowder with green beans, chunks of ham, mushroom soup and milk. It's nice and thick and creamy and sticks to the ribs. Cook on top of the stove or in a crock pot. And we like scalloped potatoes in a crockpot, topped with cheese before serving.

    I sometimes have made Jumbo Stuffed Shells and they've gone over very well.

    Just plop country style pork ribs in the slow cooker, add a couple cans of sauerkraut, put about 12 drops of liquid splenda on top of sauerkraut, and cook all day. Tender and sweet and sour. Just great.

    Here is one that my co-workers loved and always requested that I bring when we had a pot luck at work. It is easy to fix, easy to carry and is served chilled.

    1 large can of chicken - in cans like tuna fish
    4 cups of cooked pasta - any kind
    1/4 cup of ranch dressing - lite works well
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup sliced olives - any kind

    Cook pasta per directions on package, drain well, mix other ingredients and place in fridge to chill.

    Feel free to adjust ingredients to taste. Depending on the type of pasta I use, I sometimes add a little more ranch dressing to prevent it from being too dry. I also add more olives and parmesan when I fix this at home because I love both of these ingredients.

    This recpe also works well with tuna fish packed in water.

    Chili! Freeze in freezer bags ahead of time, and place in refrigerator or cooler when leaving for camping. Will thaw slowly, but you can even put it in a large coffee can and place on a grill or fire if you don't have a stove in a camper or a camp pot.

    If you have a freezer why not make BBQ ahead and freeze it. Does it have to be a main dish? if not, deviled eggs are good and don't require many ingredients.
