There are so many fun things to celebrate this week, so I thought I’d share another recipe. With 3/14 being Pi Day, 3/18 being National Sloppy Joe Day, and then we have Manwich Monday coming up, I thought I’d put them all together for a quick and easy dinner to celebrate. My easy Manwich Mexi Frito Pie is so quick to throw together, but has the flavor of hours of preparation. Who says you have to have a sweet pie for Pi Day? A Mexi Frito Pie would make the perfect entree before my Lemon Meringue Pie recipe. The two just pair so nicely.
Didn’t know there was a National Sloppy Joe Day? Indeed there is, and Manwich is here to help. Manwich is by far the easiest way to pack a lot of flavor into any cooked ground beef or turkey. Instead of a traditional Sloppy Joe over at my house, I thought I’d share our version which is more like nachos. Ditch the bread and break out the Fritos!
Once you have your meat tossed with Manwich, the topping possibilities are endless. The best part about Manwich, is the seasonings are all in there for you – no hunting through the cupboard for the right spices. I suggest changing it up from time to time, but you really can’t go wrong when you add in corn, beans, cheese, avocado and sour cream! My husband is a spicy kind of guy so I whipped up a skillet with a special batch just for him.
To meet the tastes of those in your household, you can add some sliced jalapenos, sliced red peppers, or even some sliced dill pickles. I would put the spicy ingredients as (optional) in my recipe below. I love the pop of color the peperoncinis and peppers provide.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 can Manwich Thick and Chunky
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can green chilis, drained
- 1/2 bag Fritos
- 1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1 roma tomato, chopped
- 1/2 can sliced olives
- dollop of sour cream
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- In a skillet (I use a cast iron skillet), brown turkey with a little salt and pepper. Toss in Manwich, corn, black beans and chilis, and stir until combined.
- Remove meat mixture from skillet.
- Layer Fritos on the bottom of the skillet. Top with meat mixture.
- Sprinkle cheese over meat and bake for 4-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
- Before serving, top Mexi Frito Pie with avocado, tomatoes and olives. Enjoy!
