Sloppy Joes are a favorite of adults and kids. I deviated from the traditional recipe by adding a little Southwestern spiciness. —Geraldine Saucier, Albuquerque, New Mexico

"These were very good, however I didn't really pick up a big "tex-mex" flavor."

"Delicious! I added a little brown sugar to it, but didn't change anything else. I'll make this again, definitely."

"I thought this recipe was very good. I added cilantro, used pork instead of beef, and cut down on the ketchup, but that was all just based on what we had--worked out great."

"This is the best sloppy joe recipe I have ever had! We love spicy in our family and this has just the right amount! Even my 8 year old son loved them and he usually doesn't eat sloppy joes!"

"These are by far the best sloppy joes I have ever had and my new favorite recipe. For my personal tastes I use dry minced onion and leave out the green chilies but for a crowd I do it as written."

"Made this for a 'handful of men' at a men's meeting & was sorry to learn they didn't like it. The other reviews were so favorable."

"Loved this new way to make sloppy joes. I made a few changes. I used 3/4 cup ketchup instead of a full cup and extra lean ground beef. I imagine turkey would be good too. Delicious."

"Made these tonight for my husband and served them on home-made hamburger buns. It was so simple and tasty and a big hit. We think this is a big improvement on regular Sloppy Joes."

"Boy are these good! Easy to put together and smells delicious while cooking. Due to picky eaters in the family not liking ?chunks? of stuff, I substituted garlic and onion powders for the garlic and onions. I also left out the green chilies. My husband said these are better than regular sloppy joes. I will be making these again."
