Hey friends!

Have you ever ventured into the world of dehydrating food?! You should give it a try! It’s super easy & very rewarding! There are so many great creations YOU can make with a food dehydrator. Parker likes when I puree strawberries with honey on parchment paper and dehydrated it…then we cut them into strips for our very own homemade fruit roll ups!

You can dry fruit, veggies and even back country MEALS which is what we’ll be doing in today’s video. Dehydrating is a wonderful way to preserve food for long time storage. Maybe you’re going on a camping trip or sending your husband off hunting…or maybe you’re like me and you’ve got a lil “prepper” in ya…and you want to have some food saved up JUST in case of an emergency! No matter what it is, dehydrating your food is not hard at all. Trust me! 🙂

I’m always fascinated at how dehydrated food comes back to life when you re-hydrate it with some water. And you guys…with the right ingredients, it’s delicious!

In today’s video I’m going to be making 3 simple recipes. Each recipe creates 3 meals and each meal will feed about 2 people…maybe 3 if your sharing with one of your kiddos!

For these 3 recipes you will need your dehydrator & a kitchen scale (I bought mine on Amazon for less than $13). You will also need to cook & dehydrate your ground beef & chicken ahead of time. I used about 3 lbs of ground beef & about 10-12 chicken breasts. You can cook your meat however you’d like before you dehydrate it, just remember you don’t need to season it because we will be adding seasonings to the meals before we package them up for storage!

**Important** when you cook your ground beef, rinse it thoroughly in a colander under hot water…mix it around good and squeeze as much fat/grease out as you can…too much grease & fat can spoil the food quicker! Then I just lay out the ground beef on a cookie sheet and press out the excess water with paper towels before dehydrating.

I dehydrate all of my meat around 155 degrees for 8-12 hours & I dehydrate the mixes I share in this video at about 135 degrees for 8-12 hours.

For my dehydrated meals, I shoot for 150 grams total per meal. 50 grams of that is my meat & the rest is made up of the mix & seasonings that I add.

✅ Beef Macaroni:
1. Dehydrated ground beef
2. 2 cups cooked macaroni noodles
3. 1 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
4. 1 cup sautéed onions
5. 1 cup diced tomatoes
6. 2 TBS powdered milk (can add a little extra if you’d like)
7. 2 TBS powdered cheese (can also add a little extra to make it more cheesy!)
8. A pinch of salt & pepper

✅ Chicken Spanish Casserole:
1. Dehydrated chicken
2. 2 cups cooked rice (any kind of rice will do, just make sure it’s cooked)
3. 1/3 cup salsa
4. 1 can of cream of chicken soup
5. 1 can of rinsed/drained black beans
6. 1/2 cup frozen corn
7. 1/2 tsp chilli powder
8. 1/2 tsp paprika
9. Pinch of salt & pepper

✅ Chicken Curry:
1. Dehydrated chicken
2. 2 cups cooked rice
3. 1 cup coconut milk
4. 1 cup sautéed mushrooms & red bell peppers (about 1 bell pepper & 5-6 mushrooms)
5. 1/2 cup frozen peas
6. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
7. 1/2 tsp chilli powder
8. 3/4 tsp curry powder (a little extra if you’d like)
9. Pinch of dried parsley
10.Pinch of salt & pepper
