Potluck Sloppy Joes Recipe

For a change of pace, Rick suggests swapping out the green pepper in these tasty sloppy joes for an Anaheim, if available. Long and lighter green in color than a bell pepper, Anaheim peppers have just a hint of a bite. —Rick Bolte, Montclair, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2011

"Very tasty! I made this as a potluck for friends. I cooked the meat and veggies as directed, then a that and the rest of the ingredients to my slow cooker. I substituted brown sugar for the regular sugar, with an additional tablespoon. I also added a tablespoon of chili powder for a richer color and taste, my preference. Just because I like my food with a little extra sauce I added an extra can of sauce, and a tablespoon of cornstarch/water. I cooked it on low for 4 or 5 hours. It came with rave reviews from our friends and my picky husband and toddler who all ate a lot of it."
