Southwestern Manwich Stew

This isn't a sponsored post...but I had to include Manwich in the recipe title because it plays such a prominent role in this dish.

I saw this on Pinterest from Real Mom Kitchen. She calls it a chili...but that's not really what it is. It tastes more like Brunswick stew from the sweet-tangy Manwich sauce. I was a big fan.

I also loved that it didn't make a ton (four servings). My dinner...and lunch for me and two co-workers, and it was gone. 

This has such great flavor, and it comes together quickly for a weeknight meal. You can simmer for just 30 minutes (as directed)...but I let mine go on the stove for a couple of hours. The house smelled wonderful. Great winter recipe!
