Sherri’s Sweet ‘n Spicy Sloppy Joes

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

I love sloppy joes, but most recipes are really bland for me. I keep experimenting, because I like them spicy, but also sweet, so here is what I came up with!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut pepper into bite size pieces, dice onion, smash garlic.
  2. Brown hamburger together with the onion, pepper, and garlic until the hamburger is cooked.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Serve over toasted hamburger buns.

PAC Fall 2007 ~ We like it, but thought it was a bit too sweet, even with just a 1/4 cup brown sugar. Instead of ketchup, I took a can of chopped tomatoes, poured them into a sieve, let the water drain, then pushed them through to give a puree. Had a nice kick though with the cayenne and paprika! You didn't specify whether to use dry or prepared mustard, so used a prepared honey Dijon. Thanks for sharing!
