This was so easy and tasty! I haven’t made sloppy joes in years, but this will now be one of my go-to dinner recipes.

Excellent! I made this for a church lunch and they loved every bite! I added a chopped red bell pepper and 1 Tbsp each of Worcestershire and vinegar. Made it early in the day so that flavors could develop and meld.

This is a great recipe. I have made this, doubled the recipe and added 1 pound of ground pork. I then cooked 2 cups of raw rice and added it to the meat mixture in a 9 X 13 pan. Then covered with Shredded cheese and baked 45 min at 350. Makes a very tasty casserole.

Very tasty ! I added 1 chopped Jalapeño pepper and I did not have chili sauce so I used salsa instead, otherwise I followed the recipe. I will be making this to my meal rotation.

Very good! I doubled except only 1 can chilies, 1 1/2 c ketchup, no red pepper flakes, and I threw in a couple tablespoons of my taco seasoning. I will be making these again.

These were very good, however I didn't really pick up a big "tex-mex" flavor.

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.
