I used this recipe to build a vegetarian sloppy joe with mashed kidney beans and it was AMAZING! I used about half the brown sugar and ketchup called for here, no mustard, and probably a bit less chili powder as well, with red wine vinegar. To. Die. For. Perfect comfort food. Thanks so much!

How easy and quick this came together. I used 1.25 pounds of ground chuck and 2 pounds ground turkey combined well then doubled the other ingredients and fed lots of hungry kids and some surprised adults. This is a keeper

My husband and I really enjoyed this. I made a couple of changes - Added a Red Pepper, More Onion, A clove of Garlic, Some Garlic Powder and more Chilli Powder. It turned out perfectly over some hamburger rolls. Definitely a keeper! Thanks so much :)
