We have a "new" to us Dutch oven that will be going on our camping trip next month. Would like to know from those with experience what would be one of the first things we should try until we have experience under our belt.

Would kind of like a one pot meal that we could experiment with that is tried and true.

Thanks!

Biscuits! Remember...2/3 of the coals on top, 1/3 on the bottom.

I suggest you do a couple of practice runs at home before camping. Old hand mitts, A lid lifter and chimney starter are helpful.
Learn to balance the amount of heat on top can be tricky.
Start simple making sure you plan plenty of time and have enough charcoal briquettes or coals.
A Fruit Cobbler or garlic pull apart bread to start.

Stew.

I would recommend a chicken stew or pork stew. With meat, carrots, potato, onion. Some oil or bacon fat in the pan to start with and brown the meat a bit. Then throw everything in together. 30 charcoal briquettes - with 20 on top and 10 underneath. Cook for about 45 minutes. Good to go. No leftovers.

Have fun!

Any stew
Chili
Spaghetti
Try biscuits later once you understand heat better.
Most people use too much heat at first.

Chili has no beans.
If you put beans in it then it is something else.
According the International Chili Society.

I recently read and posted that crumpled aluminum foil makes cleanup easier (not easy). Can't verify from experience.

Chuck roast. A few hours and you have a tender meat. Remove and add chicken stock, potatoes, carrots and any other vegetables. Bring to a simmer and cook till done. Really good.

You can get the basics from dutch oven videos on Youtube. Here's a good one:
