This bogburger ragout is classic camping food at its best. It's fast, it all goes in one pot and it looks, well, looks aren't important at a time like this.


  • 500 g medium or lean ground beef , (or turkey)
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 1 796-mL can tomatoes , mashed up in the can
  • 1 540-mL can kidney beans , or Romano beans, drained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw macaroni , (like elbows or shells)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin , (optional)
  • pinch black pepper , or dash hot pepper sauce


  • In a large skillet brown the ground beef with the chopped onion over a medium fire (ha!) until the onion is softened. Drain off the fat (not into the fire!).
  • Add all the remaining ingredients, stir well to combine and cook, covered, for about 30 minutes or until the pasta is done. Sprinkle with some cheese if you’d like.
