Even better, dry your own fillings. You can add the salsa to the beans before
you dry them, and even dry shredded cooked beef or chicken with the beans all
mixed up. This brittle mixture is easily reconstituted (add water and mix to a
plastic bag at lunch and let it ride all day in your pack) and makes great
"field burritos." I also enjoy fresh shredded cheese, and since hard cheese
keeps well, you can slice it right in the pot when you heat the beans and make
wonderful and high protean eats.
