Make Ahead

1.   In a large bowl, combine sausages, jalapeños, red peppers, onion, beans, corn, salsa, oil, salt, coriander and pepper.

3.   Prepare campfire coals. Place packets on hot coals and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, moving packets occasionally, until sausage mixture is very hot.

4.   Transfer packs to a flat surface and open with caution, allowing steam to escape. Crack 1 egg into the center of each packet. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Reseal packet, return to coals and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until eggs are done to your liking. Serve sprinkled with cheese, with 2 tortillas per packet

For warm tortillas, spray 1 large foil sheet with cooking spray. Stack tortillas 2 at a time, separating each pair with a sheet of parchment paper. Fold foil into a flat packet and seal edges tightly. Heat on coals for 5 to 7 minutes, turning packets over once, until warm.

Store the packets in a cooler at 40F (4C) until ready to cook. Thaw frozen tacos in the cooler (or refrigerator) before cooking.
