My Husband Calls This BBQ (Sloppy Joes)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Felina

This is from the yellowest, blotchy recipe card in the house, so you know it has been used a LOT! This is my Cincinnati husband's mother's recipe and they just called it BBQ. It is really Sloppy Joes, but what can you expect from people who eat Greek chili on spaghetti? Ha! Cincinnati chili is actually fabulous if you haven't tried it! Now here's the "BBQ" AKA Sloppy Joes!

This was really good and quick to make. I usually use tomato sauce to make sloppy joes, but if I want to make it last minute and don't have any I have to make something else...I like that this uses ketchup, we ALWAYS have that!! Was not too tangy with the ingredients and the hot sauce added a nice bite, but not too spicy! Made for Spring PAC 2010.
