What a dreadful word. It’s true, Mondays are (quite likely) the least liked day of the week. It’s the day everyone gets back into the routine of a busy work and school week. After a relaxing weekend the first thing on my mind for the rest of the wee is … what’s for dinner?

Being a work-from-home-mom it’s my job to answer that question and make sure a meal is on the table after my husband has had a hard day at work and the kids need refueled before another day of school. I like to think of Mondays as my easy meal day. It’s the one day of the week I put together a meal that doesn’t take a lot of work but has some “kid-stopping power”. I want everyone around the table so we can have a conversation and enjoy a meal together.

One way I do that is with Manwich.

Manwich Beef and Potato Burritos

While Manwich is the ultimate sauce for making an old-fashioned Sloppy Joe sandwich I do like to mix it up a bit to keep dinner interesting. It’s a great all-purpose sauce for beef or chicken and even used as my secret ingredient in a great chili.

Most recently I used Manwich to make a scrumptious grilled burrito. It’s made in the traditional Sloppy Joe kind of way except we add in roasted potatoes, pepper, cheese and sour cream. You could even throw some re-fried beans in the mix, we just don’t happen to care for them. They’re easy to throw together and easy to eat.

How to Make Grilled Manwich Beef and Potato Burritos

Weeknight Meal Tips

  • One Pot Meal Wonders - I like to save time in the kitchen by putting together weeknight meals that can all fit into one pot. It makes cooking fast, clean-up easy and the kids satisfied. Manwich is great for putting a finishing touch on the meal with a rich, flavorful sauce.
  • Something for Everyone - We like to make a meal buffet-style with a toppings bar. Everyone gets to put together their own plate with the flavors they love. You can make it fun with themes and topping like a taco bar, burger bar or even a build-your-own pizza with Manwich sauce and all the fixin’s.
  • Wrap It Up - Contain a messy meal with tortilla wraps. Sloppy Joes or Pulled Pork is fun to eat when it’s wrapped in a tortilla and you don’t have to worry about pre-treating stains the rest of the evening.
