"With four small children at home, I need quick yet filling meals," says Leticia Lewis of Kennewick, Washington. This fast family favorite is just 66 cents per sandwich. "For a spicier taste, eliminate the ketchup and increase the amount of salsa to 1 cup," she suggests.

This has become a regular in our house, we love it. I sauteed the veggies in olive oil instead of butter.

MY REVIEW

I made this lastnight for dinner. A total of 4 people and i can not tell you how much they loved it. I had to double the ingredients slighty, hungry eater's were coming over. I would not change a thing about this recipe. The flavor can be played with depending on how spicy you want it/ Very fun and I will be definitely be making this again. I'm considering trying the recipe with a shredded pork.

My son RAVED about these sandwiches and thinks they're even better than barbecued beef or sloppy Joes! I did add about a half a teaspoon of liquid smoke, but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. A couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts yielded enough meat to make six sandwiches, so it's economical too. I loved the crunch of the celery. Add a few potato chips and a dill pickle spear on the side and you feel like you're eating in a sandwich shop!
