To Make This Sloppy Joe Burritos You Will Need:

Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce

Lean ground beef: Look for lean ground beef with a lower fat percentage, usually labeled as 90% lean or higher. This will result in a healthier and less greasy dish.

Taco seasoning: You can either buy pre-packaged taco seasoning or make your own by combining spices like chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Choose options with lower sodium content for a healthier choice.

Salt and pepper: Use salt and pepper to taste, and consider lower-sodium options if you’re watching your salt intake.

Onion: Choose fresh onions that are firm and free from sprouting. Yellow or white onions are commonly used in recipes like this.

Red bellp pepper: Look for red bell peppers that are vibrant in color, firm, and free from wrinkles or blemishes. This will ensure the best flavor and texture.

Oil: When using oil for cooking, opt for a heart-healthy oil like olive oil or canola oil. They are lower in saturated fats and better for your overall health.

Cheese: Select a cheese that melts well and complements the flavors of your Sloppy Joe. Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese are popular choices. You can choose reduced-fat or part-skim cheese for a healthier option.

Flour tortillas: Pick flour tortillas that suit your taste and dietary preferences. Whole wheat tortillas are a healthier alternative, offering more fiber and nutrients. You can also find low-carb or gluten-free options if needed.
