Chipotle Sloppy Joes With Crunchy Coleslaw

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Brenda.

A Tex-Mex like twist on traditional sloppy joes, paired with a cool, crunchy coleslaw topping. As a personal preference I leave out the cilantro, but recipe is posted as written.

I thought these were great!! From the other comments, I adjusted the cole slaw dressing a little bit to suit our tastes. I diced the red pepper and I used a large tablespoon of sour cream, 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, a good shot of Frank's red hot sauce and then salt and pepper. Come out fantastic and went really well with the meat mixture. I didn't add the cilantro to the mixture as DH doesn't really care for it and just sprinkled some on my sandwich instead. We used some soft onion rolls and served them with Recipe #372939.
