Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups

We love a quick #ManwichMondays meal. That means a quick, easy, and tasty meal that I don’t have to spend more than 30 minutes making. Just what I need (and probably you do too) on busy Mondays! This recipe fits the bill perfectly.

Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups Recipe - ready in less than 30 minutes! I made these and my boys LOVED them!

My boys like smaller portioned foods and making this version of a Sloppy Joe is perfect. It’s less messy and smaller size means less cooking time. Which is great for us on weeknights.

Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups Recipe - kids loved these as after school snack!

I made this recipe with Original Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce. It’s a hearty sauce with a slightly sweet and tangy taste. It also comes in Manwich Bold and Manwich Thick & Chunky. 

Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups Recipe - very versatile recipe!

I used a ground turkey in my Sloppy Joe Wonton Cups Recipe to cut out some of the fat and calories. With such a bold-flavored sauce, you won’t miss any of the flavors that you traditionally think of as a ‘beef’ recipe. I also used wonton wrappers instead of a cornbread or biscuit crust. This also cuts down on the calories. Adding just a touch of Greek yogurt adds additional protein and flavor without any additional calories. If you choose, you can omit the cheddar to save even more. But, I totally had to have the cheese! Plus, this is a family meal, I have to sneak healthier options where I can that aren’t so noticeable that my boys still eat it. This was a complete #win with the whole family!

  1. From your recipe and calorie count, would 1 serving be 1 wonton sloppy joe? … or more? Haven’t tried it yet but plan on it for a party where several of us are on a weight loss program.

    1. Yes, one cup is one serving. You could use a low sugar tomato/spaghetti sauce or enchilada sauce instead of the Manwich sauce and cut the calories even more.

  2. 5 stars
    My kids love the sloppy joe wontons – this recipe is now a regular item for school lunches😊 Thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    I love cornbread so I would make the Sloppy Joe Cornbread Bake, but I would substitute the original sloppy joe for spicy and I would also substitute the pkg of corn muffin mix for homemade cornbread mix. I would also, as some commenters did, add cheese and probably peppers. I also want to try these sloppy joe wonton cups.

  4. I love these sloppy joe wonton cups! What a fun idea. I’m betting our kids would love the baked sloppy joe cups also. Definitely have to keep those both in mind.

  5. We are a biscuit-loving family, so the sloppy joe biscuit casserole is the recipe I am most interested in.
