Grill Packets

  • 2 1/2 cups creamer potatoes halved
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans
  • 1 bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 white onion thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Optional Garnishes

  • 1/4 cup prepared guacamole
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa
  • Shredded cheese
  • sour cream or greek yogurt
  • chopped cilantro
  • fresh lime


  • Begin by tearing 8"-10" wide segments of tin foil from a tin foil roll so you have 4 large rectangular pieces. Set these aside on your kitchen counter or a large working space.
  • Slice the creamer potatoes in half and add to a large bowl.
  • Add in the black beans, sliced bell pepper and onion, taco seasoning and salt.
  • Drizzle over the olive oil.
  • Using clean hands toss together to combine everything well.
  • Divide the potato mixture evenly between the 4 tin foil pieces and pile the potato mixture in the center of the tin foil rectangle.
  • Fold each tin foil piece to cover and wrap the potato mixture then fold and pinch the edges to seal tightly.
  • Store the tin foil packets for up to 2 days in the fridge.
  • Once ready to cook, place the tin foil packet on a grill or grate over an open flame and cook for 15-20 minutes or until done. The potatoes should be easy to pierce with a fork and browned slightly.
  • Once cooked, open the packets and top with 1 tablespoon of guacamole and 1 tablespoon of salsa each, and other optional garnishes if desired.
