"Great recipe! I liked that it called for chili sauce, gave it just a slight tang. Even though I doubled the recipe, it was quickly eaten by a group of hungry teenagers! As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home, I enjoy making recipes that can be quickly assembled with ingredients I have on hand."

"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!"
