Recipe by ChefLee

I love Cinco De Mayo and I wanted to invent a recipe for my celebration! These sloppy joes have a cheesy, spicy, kick to them. I hope you like them!

This was very tasty and spicy! I left out the cayenne and was glad I did. Otherwise just made a few minor changes (olive oil not butter, yellow bell pepper not green, apple cider vinegar not white). I couldn't find ro-tel with lime and cilantro so used regular ro-tel with chiles and added a squeeze of lemon juice. I served this open-faced over some cornbread I already had made (Recipe #112844). Thanks for the recipe!
