When I was little I used to LOVE sloppy joe night! You could always smell that savory aroma coming from the kitchen, the ground beef sizzling, the sauce being served, it was always a good night when those messy sandwiches were placed on the table! Since then, I have become a mother and I have found new and equally exciting uses for that handy can of Manwich.
When the week really gets going, dinner always seems to drag me down. Just one more thing to do at the end of a busy day! Manwich Monday is the best way to kick off a week of quick, quality, tasty family dinners. Plus, your kids will need both hands for these messy-licious treats, so no phones or video games allowed! Manwich is the perfect way to turn your families attention back to dinner and spending time together!
This recipe is one that my family loves. I pretty much always have all the ingredients on hand, so it is often one I make before grocery shopping or right after I grocery shop because I can make it while I put everything else away. Just follow these simple steps with the following ingredients:
- 1 can of Original Flavor Manwich (any flavor will work, this is the one I like best)
- 1lb Ground Turkey or Beef
- 1 undrained can of Kidney Beans
- 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
- 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
- 2 Cups of shredded cheese- I like a casserole blend or just cheddar
Brown your ground turkey, then drain it. Add the can of Original Manwich.
Add the can of kidney beans.
Add in your garlic and chili powders. I alter this amount to taste but usually 2t. is pretty perfect.
Once that is all combined, bring it to a boil and let it simmer for a few minutes. Go ahead and turn off the heat and top with the cheese. Cover the pan and let the cheese melt.
Now is the fun part. Eating! Serve this with chips or it also makes a fantastic topping for a baked potato!
My kids love this fast dinner. Monday nights happen to be our designated family night, so a lot of times we eat this while we have family game night.
