Wondered about all the water, but it works. I used 1/2 chili sauce and 1/2 ketchup. Second time I made it I doubled the recipe and froze the extra.

Not worth making. I am not sure I can describe the taste of these but I can say for sure I will never make them again. I served these to a group of 8 friends and not one person liked them. Thumbs down on this recipe.

Loved It! Best Sloppy Joe recipe I have tasted. I did change out one thing based on another review. Instead of using all the mustard, I used 2 TBSP each of mustard and ketchup. Although I'm sure it would have been good without the change the other reviewer's idea appealed to me and it was perfect! Thanks for the post!

I do not care for a sweet Sloppy Joe so this recipe is perfect! It is savory, a tad spicy and so delicious! It is definitely my favorite recipe for Sloppy Joes!

This was good. My husband, 6 and 8 year olds ate it up with no complaints which never happens! They all said how good it was-Would definitely make this again. Did add a diced onion amd minced garlic for added flavor.

Made these today for two families to share. I cut the amount of mustard to 1 tablespoon, added a bit of ketchup and some horseradish for an extra kick. Dee-lish.

Since there is just the two of us. I cut the recipe in half. I make my own buns and this recipe fit them just right. I have been looking for a recipe like this so I don't have to use can stuff. Thanks for sharing.
