Made half recipe for the easiest,quickest, and best "Spoppy" Joes I've ever made! Used half of this on 1 bun for a hearty supper and plan to finish the other half served over spaghetti for lunch tomorrow. YUM! I can't wait! Thanks for posting your son's great recipe Miss Rat. Made for Choose Your Event Party.

This was a good easy recipe. I needed something to use up some left over tomato paste and this was perfect. The only change I made was using ground turkey instead of ground beef, which worked fine. Thanks for posting!
