I can't believe that out of almost 40,000 recipes, no-one has posted a recipe for this! These are Iowa's claim to fame, sort of like a cousin to the Sloppy Joe.

Great dish! Not to spicy for the younger set, but enough seasoning to appeal to everyone. Easy and quick to make, and a well stocked kitchen will usually have all the ingredients on hand. A great highschool football game night dish. My husband topped his with some grated cheddar cheese. Yumm! (If this posts twice, please excuse me. The posting gremlins are working overtime tonight. :)
