invest in a food dehydrator. the best meal ive made so far for backpacking is dehydrated chili.

40 oz ground turkey
16 oz can tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can chili beans
1 can corn
1 pepper
1 onion
3 jalapenos
6 garlic cloves
chili spice
cayenne pepper
salt pepper

cook turkey then cook everything in a crock pot, then dehydrate.

this if for my 4 night backpacking trip coming up this week. i also add dehydrated pasta. on the trail put in freezer zip lock bag and add boiling water and let sit for 15 minutes insulated in something. or get a pot and simmer. its all crusty, doesn't go bad and its lightweight. there are so many things you can dehydrate for backpacking its great. i rarely ever but freeze dried foods unless i don't have time to prepare everything.
