I took this recipe just for the "sloppy Joe" part, but it turned into more of a "chili dog" type of thing! I subbed red kidney beans for beef, left out the peppers, subbed diced mushrooms for the celery, subbed ketchup and brown sugar for BBQ sauce instead, and used everything else roughly the same, albeit I didn't really measure anything. It turned out amazing! Just goes to show if you have a good starting recipe you can modify it all you need and still get a great result! This made a ton also, so I'll have left overs which always a bonus. Thanks!

I found this recipe a few years ago and made it several times for a group of people. Including kids. Everyone really loved it and I received many complements. Serve with the grilled onions and the cheese. Don’t change the recipe until you have tried it as is. Then next time you can change it to suit your taste. As we say in Hawaii, sooooo ono!!! (Sooooo good!!!)

The only change I made was to use red bell pepper instead of green. I actually made the topping ahead and split it into a few batches. Some I stashed in the freezer, and the rest I kept in the fridge. This made the meal come together super quickly. I just reheated the sloppy joe mixture in a disposable pan on the grill while I cooked the hot dogs. Absolutely perfect served on New England style buns.

My DH wasn't wild about it. He enjoys a simpler recipe.

Good stuff! Used it for sloppy joes as well, hence the name! We will make this again!

Where I'm from this is just hot dog sauce. Will try this one though. Maybe skip the cheese.

This is excellent! I added teaspoon chili powder and 15 oz can tomato soup. Such a quick and tasty recipe to put on hamburger buns also.

Made with Sabret Hot Dogs. Only one supermarket down here in the Big Bend carry them and they sell out fast. Wonderful Sloppy Joe recipe. Better than anything I had as a kid! I did the grilled onions and don't think you should leave them out.
