Manwich Cheese Shell Sloppy Joe Tacos

It's Manwich Monday, y'all and that means we have a delish Sloppy Joe inspired dinner tonight.
Since my kids love tacos I decided to make Sloppy Joe Tacos and for an added twist {and low carb option} I made the shells out of shredded cheese instead of traditional tortillas!

Make Tonight a Manwich Night


As you know my family and I love cooking with Manwichespecially on busy weeknights!
The kids love the tangy flavor and fun Sloppy Joe inspired recipes and I love how easy to use and flavor packed Manwich sloppy joe sauce is! 
Manwich is a hearty, meat free sauce with a sweet and tangy taste.
It is available in three varieties : Manwich Original, Manwich Bold and Manwich Thick & Chunky.

Ingredients:

Makes 9 regular tacos or 12 small tacos
  • 15.5 oz can Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion,diced
  • 1 lb ground beef {I used lean ground sirloin}
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • chopped avocado, tomato, cilantro, and a scoop of sour cream, for topping

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet crumble ground beef and cook over medium heat until browned. 
  2. Add diced onion and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain if needed.
  4. Pour in Manwich and stir and heat through.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Add 1/3 cup scoops of shredded cheese in 4 piles on the baking sheet.
  8. You can also make smaller 1/4 cup piles for mini taco shells. 
  9. Bake for 8 minutes then remove the sheet from the oven and let the cheese circles cool for 30 seconds to a minute. I also gently blot off excess oil with a papertowel.
  10. Gently remove each cheese circle with a spatula and lay on top of a suspended wooden spoon so that the cheese folds over into a taco shell shape.
  11. Let each shell cool completely then repeat with remaining cheese.
  12. You should get about 9 regular size taco shells or 12 small taco shells.
  13. Fill shells with the sloppy joe mixture then top with your favorite toppings. I like chopped tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream.
  14. Serve with rice and beans on the side.
