    Rita~'s Note:

    Spicy!!!! Crock pot recipe! Yes! There is no reason you can't make these stove top. Just simmer till flavors meld and meat is tender. I also puree an optional carrot and red bell pepper for sweetness and extra nutrients for the family

      Today I prepared the sloppy joes ontop the stove, and thought I'd edit my review... I did use 2 lbs of ground beef though, 1 cup of diced onion, 2 cloves of garlic (minced), 3/4 cup of Spicy Hot V-8, 1 cup of catsup, I omitted the water, added 3 tablespoons of packed brown sugar, 2 pickled jalapenos (which I cut in half; removed the seeds, and diced them into the meat mixture). I also added 1 slightly heaping tablespoon of yellow prepared mustard, 3 teaspoons of chili powder, and 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce. I simmered the sloppy joe mix (covered) for 25 minutes; stirring twice while simmering. I then removed the cover, and continued simmering the sloppy joe mix for 10 minutes. This was an easy way to cook the sloppy joes, minus using the crock-pot. My review on May 27th, 2008: Rita L, chef sheerkerry prepared these "excellant" sloppy joes, but she used a mild picante tomato juice, and added a little more ketchup (a 3/4 cup). The brand of canned jalapenos she used was, La Victoria Fire Roasted "Hot" Diced Jalapenos. She also added 2 Tablespoons of Mc Cormick's 1 Step Seasonings (Tex - Mex Chili Spice). We ate this on toasted hamburger buns, with a shredded Mexican cheese ontop. Rita, these sloppy joes were so darn good. Thank you for this delicious recipe!! Editing my review of recipe... Rita, I just recently I made these delicious sloppy joes once again, but this time I cooked them on high for 2-1/2 hours in the crockpot.

      Excellent crockpot recipe! I made a few minor changes to this based on what I had on hand. I used about 1 lb ground beef and 1 pkg (12 oz) pork sausage, V-8 juice (instead of tomato) and one chipotle pepper (instead of the jalapeno) and skipped the Worcestershire sauce. I also served this on top of rice instead of in hamburger buns. Wonderful supper for a busy weeknight and very adaptable to what I had on hand. Thanks Rita for sharing! We will be having this often on school nights this year.
