"This was real good, simple, reheated great. To stretch the leftovers even more, I mixed in some Bush's beans (Southwest Pit Barbecue flavor). This would be great over pasta, or wrapped in a tortilla!"

"This is a good recipe. quick like it says and easy! It's really just Sloppy Joe's though. I was hoping for a different flavor, but my family still enjoyed it and I'll probably make it again."
