Bemidji Camping Day Two: Cheesy Melty Campfire Dip

(Sitting above Mississippi River)

The second day we went to down town Bemidji, walked around and had lunch at Minnesota Nice Cafe.  It was a cute little ma and pop cafe on main street. Than we headed to Itaska State Park, where the Mississippi River starts. In the picture below, we are walking across the rocks that create the starting of the Mississippi. 

Cheesy Melty Campfire Dip
Another tinfoil over the campfire recipe. This gooey dip is perfect for vegetables (we usually bring carrots and cucumbers), Chips and Pretzels. 


  • 2 sheets of tin foil (about 12 by 12)
  • 1 container of Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • diced tomato 
  • sliced green onion

  1. place cream cheese on a double layer of tin foil
  2. On top of cream cheese, add salsa, diced tomatoes and sliced onions.
  3. Now you need to wrap it up. I suggest you wrap the middle first. Fold foil over 3 times. Than tightly roll ends tightly. 
  4. Place on bbq over the fire for 10 to 15 minutes. Be sure to have the seams facing up, so your dip doesn't melt into the fire.
Keep in the cooler (that is if there is any left). You can eat it cooled, or roll it back up and place over the fire again.

Stay tuned for part three of four. Its DESSERT TIME!
