Traeger Camping: Baja Shrimp & Chorizo Tin Foil Dinner

Want to spice up your average tin foil dinner with an exotic baja twist? Instead of sausage and potatoes, think chorizo, shrimp, corn and zucchini with a roasted tomato sauce. We took a little inspiration from the combination of fresh ingredients in this recipe to put together this scrumptious quick and easy tin foil dinner.

BAJA SHRIMP & CHORIZO TIN FOIL DINNER

PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 10 to 15 minutes
RECOMMENDED PELETS: Mesquite, Oak or Alder
SERVES: 4

INGREDIENTS
1 cup sliced zucchini
24 uncooked shrimp, peeled (with tail shells left on), deveined
1 cup fresh corn kernels
4 oz bulk Mexican chorizo sausage
1/2 cup roasted tomato Mexican cooking sauce

Start your Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Preheat the Traeger to High with lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.

Tear off 4 pieces of 12-inch lengths of heavy-duty foil to make 4 packets. Lightly spray one side of each piece of foil (side that will be inside of packet) with canola oil cooking spray. In center of each piece of foil, layer 1/4 cup zucchini, 6 shrimp and 1/4 cup corn; crumble 1 oz. chorizo sausage into small pieces over top.

Spoon 2 tablespoons of cooking sauce over top. 

Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space on sides for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal. Seal all four packets.
