A busy family needs healthy food that can be made in a hurry. That is one of the things that we try to do often in my house. Most nights in my house are filled with kids needing to get to work, a friend’s house or to cheer practice. I hate giving the kids fast food often, and cooking from a box or bag is not my favorite thing.
My kids love Sloppy Joes so National Sloppy Joe Day, on March 18th, is a hit in my house. But I like to mix things up when I can. This year for Sloppy Joe day we are making something a little different. I decided to try making something like chili fries. Now I love chili fries, but not all of the kids love chili like I do. But making my version of chili fries, Manwich fries, the kids devour them.
When making Sloppy Joes, I am usually too pressed for time to deal with getting all of the spices and chopping up everything that makes it taste good. I like to use because Manwich has three different canned sauce varieties. There is the Original, Bold and Thick & Chunky. There is only quality ingredients used, with no meat in the can, so that I can use whatever I like to add the best flavor and I can even use Manwich for something like pasta.
Making the Manwich Fries is as easy as can be. The kids think they are getting a junk food dinner, when really, this is a nutritious dinner when you add in some extra veggies.
Simply bake the french fries according the package.
Brown the hamburger. Once it is browned, add in your favorite variety of Manwich. I love using the Thick and Chunky. For an added kick, try the Bold flavor.
Simmer until the fries are ready.
Plate the fries, pile high with Manwich and enjoy.
