Sloppy Joe Quesadillas turns your favorite childhood sandwich into a quick, griddle Tex-Mex treat!
I’ll have to admit, I had a lot of fun with this post! In the mail, I received three Hunt’s Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce flavors to try. It’s been a while since I’ve had a Sloppy Joe. I cook mostly from scratch. That doesn’t mean I cook only from scratch. I take shortcuts. easy recipes, and convenient add-ins. As well, I get tons of inspiration from commercials!
Recently, this blog has become a full-time job. I love it, but it keeps me busy! Wesley’s been busy at work. Lincoln and Ryder started school and are busy with all the activities that come with that. I was ecstatic at the chance to try all three Manwich flavors; Original, Bold, and Thick and Chunky. At least I knew what we’d be having for dinner two nights this week!
Hunt’s Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce is hearty. The original flavor is slightly sweet and tangy. It’s made with quality ingredients that are free of artificial flavors and preservatives. AND, it offers a full serving of vegetables! (shhhhhh!)
I served the Original flavor, well, in an original way… on a bun. I did add grated cheddar cheese to them. It was fab, all juicy and tangy just like I remembered.
I made these according to the directions on the can using 90% lean ground beef. However, I used slider buns and topped the meat with two tablespoons of cheddar cheese, since my boys like the small buns better.

As I was cooking the Thick and Chunky flavor, it reminded me of a taco I only had a couple of hard taco shells and Lincoln ate them before I could get pictures taken. He’s my picky eater, the fact that he loved it is quite the endorsement!
I did have flour tortillas and decided to try quesadillas. I couldn’t wait to finish these pictures so I could dig into these babies!
