I can vaguely remember the days when I had time to prepare and make homemade dinners, and even dessert. Who has time anymore? With play rehearsals/performances and homework (Wow! Who knew 6th graders had so much homework!) I just don’t have the time.
I get tired of eating out, fast food, and pizza delivery, not to mention it gets pricey, so I want easy, tasty options. Thankfully there’s Manwich.
I’ve shared my love of Manwich before but I always used it to make sandwiches. Don’t get me wrong, a good Manwich can’t be beat. Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy flavor that lends itself well in recipes. I really love that each can of Manwich is free of artificial flavors and preservatives.
There is no meat in Manwich cans, so you can add lean ground beef or turkey, or keep it meatless. Perfect for sandwiches, pastas, chilis and more. Check out these Manwich Recipes for inspiration.
I decided to try something different using a can of Extra Bold Manwich for one of our weeknight dinners. We love Mexican and Tex-Mex foods and especially nachos. I never thought about using Manwich in nachos before, but I guarantee you, I’ll be using it more often. The nachos turned out delicious and hearty!
Check out the recipe below and see for yourself….
Spicy Nachos with Manwich

- Add Manwich Bold and heat through.
- Place chips into a casserole dish and pour Manwich and hambuger mixture over the chips.

My family enjoyed the spicy nachos with Manwich immensely. Let’s just say that there were no leftovers. Manwich comes in three different canned sauce varieties – Manwich Original, Manwich Bold, and Manwich Thick & Chunky. Check out for youself how Manwich can help you make Easy Weeknight Meals.
