So what does Manwich have to do with Back to School week? It’s a quick, easy dinner…that’s what!
As we gear up for Back to School along with that comes loads of extra activities, homework, carpool, and on and on…! Then, we all have to fit dinner in there somewhere too, right?
Back before I started cooking regularly, my husband used to be on dinner duty and he used Manwich frequently for our Sloppy Joe nights. It was so easy for him to do since he could quickly mix the meat with the Manwich and we would have a delicious dinner.
Did you know Manwich offers a full serving of veggies? This is especially good in our family considering my son isn’t a fan of veggies…at all!
He always made Sloppy Joes, but I wanted to mix it up a bit and make these Sloppy Joe Tacos! They literally took less than 20 minutes to make from start to finish. It was a relaxing meal that the whole family enjoyed. I mean…who doesn’t love a sloppy joe? The taco shells added a delicious crunch and burst of flavor. We used the Manwich Thick & Chunky, which I loved on tacos!
These boys are ready to get sloppy! The kids will love those bibs!
