"I am hosting a baby shower next week and was looking for a quick and easy (but tasty joe); we tried a double batch of this last night for dinner; treated our carpet installers to a trial run ... they loved it! This multiplies perfectly! 8 lbs ground beef, 8 cans tomato soup, 4 jars (24 oz. chunky salsa), and 1/2 cup brown sugar will make 64 sandwiches on hamburger buns. Thank you Krista! I am also serving the ranch pasta salad in the picture ... we've been making that all summer, and love it just as much!"

"The flavor was good, but not as good as I had expected. Our family thought too much of the tomato soup flavor came through. We added a small amount of taco seasoning mix and a little cayenne to "doctor" it up. Next time I will follow one of the suggestions mentioned and maybe add some onions, red pepper and black beans, etc."

"This is great!! I did change a little by adding chopped onions & chopped yellow/red peppers.(Because I add them to everything that I can get by with) Then to add some more fiber & nutrition & stretch the mix a bit further I added a can of rinsed black beans, as my favorite purchased salsa contains them, I decided that a little more would be even better. I know that is a few revsions but the basic is so good & the flavor is still intact but the recipe goes a bit further. Yummy! Will make this again. Thank you for the idea of salsa instead of purchased sloppy joe sauce. Wonderful idea. I will make them using salsa from now on."
