I used this recipe at a shelter for homeless women and children. They rated it 5 stars!
Made for Saturday night supper and for 5 a day - fruit and veggie event in the photo forum. We loved it, I didn't have a can of chili to use so I used a can of "chili style" kidney beans, also had no tomato sauce in so I used hot and spicy pizza sauce, they both worked very well. Next time I would add a few red pepper flakes to give a little more kick. We enjoyed them very much thanks for posting.
This was a great recipe. I was just wondering if you typically use chili without beans for this? I didn't think about it and the can I picked up was actually chili beans. Made for a strange site (beans in the sloppy joe ;) but it was very good! I thought the corn was a nice touch. Thanks!
