It’s summertime, and the livin’ should be easy! And easy it is with these make-ahead foil packs that you can throw on the grill after a long hike or a day at the beach.

Foil Packet Cabbage Wedges
Oh my, isn't foil packet cooking just too cool? Of course, it's really intended to be campfire cooking, or even outdoor grill cooking, but they're just as easy to bake right in your oven.
The advantage of cooking in foil, is that the flavor really intensifies in whatever you tuck away in those little squares. Remember that foil packet corn? Oh my gosh is that stuff good or what?! And yes, wrapping things individually is different than putting everything in one pan and just wrapping the pan – trust me. I've tried it! Not the same at all.
When the fine folks of Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q reached out to us about developing recipes using their BBQ sauce, I practically jumped out of my chair with an enthusiastic YES!
I love Stubb’s. I have great memories of dancing up a storm in my cowboy hat and boots at their place in Austin (my gosh do Texans know how to put on a party, scroll down for evidence).
Their BBQ sauce (we used Stubb’s Original) is everything you’d ever want in a BBQ sauce—deep, rich, tangy, and smoky. (It’s also gluten-free for those of us who like to avoid gluten.)
This recipe for grilled nachos in foil makes use of BBQ sauce twice—once for tossing with the cooked chopped chicken that goes on top of the tortilla chips and cheese, and once again mixed in with some sour cream to drizzle over the nachos.
