This is my go-to recipe for a quick meal. I make it several times a year and it's always a hit.

A surprise hit! The flavors combined for a sweet and tangy flavor. Not spicy at all.

This was really good! I liked how quickly it came together. I ate the mixture over leftover mashed potatoes, but everyone else used pita bread,

I loved how quick this recipe was to make and that it used ground turkey. I usually always make a buffalo turkey sloppy joe but this was a nice change. I'll be making it again.

We love sloppy joes and I have collected many recipes for preparing them over the years. I can't say this was one of my favorites but it was quick and easy.

I substituted ground chicken for the turkey. The recipe was very easy and quick. My husband enjoyed it very much. I will be making this recipe again.
