Manwich Cincinnatti Chili and a Giveaway

by Laura

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have an awesome Manwich Cincinnati Chili recipe for you today! I love the weekend, but I must admit, I do enjoy when Monday rolls around. I’m ready to get back into the grove of my regular routine. However, Mondays can be crazy too.

This is the day I usually run errands to restock my pantry after it gets used up over the weekend. It’s also the day my daughter has dance after school and soon swim practice will be starting up on that day for my son.


Manwich Monday is a great way to kick-off my meals for the week.

I can make a tasty, easy-to-make family meal around the dinner table in no time! Manwich has no meat and is perfect for sandwiches, pastas and more. Plus it comes in 3 delicious varieties  – Manwich Original, Manwich Bold, and Manwich Thick & Chunky. 

I created an easy version of Cincinnati Chili for my family using a can of Manwich Thick & Chunky. Since the sauce is so flavorful, I didn’t need to add much more. It tasted great and was a hit with the whole family. 

I love that it is a great, easy, quality ingredient that I can use to bring my family’s attention back to mealtime and away from the everyday distractions. 

Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste and it also has the kid-stopping power, as your children will need both hands to enjoy this messy-licious treat, keeping them away from video games or texting!

Now, one lucky ready will be able to get their Manwich Monday started off right. You will get a great gift pack including all 3 varieties of Manwich and a $50 VISA card. See the widget below on how to enter.

Second time I have tried this dish – absolutely delicious! Thanks ever so much for this.

Ashley Jones September 14, 2021 - 3:27 am

My store had a sale on boneless skinless tenders instead of breasts, so I think I will try this as more of a layered dish! Can hardly wait.

I tried this sauce on turkey meatballs last night and served them to my very picky children and their even pickier cousins. What a HUGE hit! I cannot thank you enough – you’ve added a new staple to their diets …

Joseph Donahue July 15, 2021 - 3:21 pm

This was delicious! I was afraid of the fennel…but it gave the sauce the best flavor! I didn’t have fresh oregano…I’m sure it would have been even better! Thanks so much..it’s a keeper.
