“We make yummy nachos with sloppy joe leftovers,” Judy DeMeyers relates from North Muskegon, Michigan. “I simply spread tortilla chips on a plate and top with spoonfuls of the meat mixture, salsa and shredded cheese, then microwave.”
Donna Musser of Pearl City, Illinois shares her “vine” version of an old standby-sloppy joes made with pumpkin! She adds cloves, nutmeg and chili powder for extra zest and suggests serving with dill pickle slices on the side.
“I got this recipe for quick-to-fix sandwiches from my Aunt Nellie-a busy farm wife, she used to serve them to the harvest crew. Microwaved leftovers taste delicious the next day.” —Mary Dempsey, Overland Park, Kansas
