MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2013

I made sloppy joes for years from the Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys & Girls recipe, but wanted to get away from using tomato soup. Have been trying many recipes, and my husband really likes this one--he said it has more "zip". So I will make this one now--thanks!

We love this recipe. Even our daughter who doesn't like this type of meal requests these often.

Excellent flavor just the way it is! Didn't have to add or subtract anything.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2011

These were so good! I didn't have any chili sauce on hand, so I substituted it for 4 TB of steak sauce. I really like how the celery gave the sloppy joes an extra crunch! Oh, I also added a binch of cayenne pepper, to give it more zip.
