Reviews for Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes
"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!"
"This will be our "go to" sloppy joe recipe. Hubby an I love the spiciness of this. Hubby said this will be his carry-in contribution for his companies annual Christmas party. Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"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."
