    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    You don't want to miss this one. The recipe came with my electricity bill, probably some 39 years ago. I tried it and it was the best recipe for Sloppy Joes I have ever had. I've been making it ever since. Great taste and just the right amount of everything.

      I loved this recipe! I did make a substitution of a large jalapeno for the bell pepper, as I was out of bell pepper. I think it added a little heat that I liked a lot, so if I make this again, I'll do the same substitution. I made it on top of the stove, so added about 1/4 cup more water to handle the evaporation, plus the fact that I like my sloppy joes juicy. I also only cooked it for about 1 hour, as I didn't read the cook time before doing the preparation, and dinner was required to be on time. I'm sure the longer cooking would have mellowed everything out some, but it was very edible after 1 hour. This is a keeper!

      The BEST sloppy joe recipe ever!!! It's not too tangy or sweet, and the flavors blend together perfectly for that old-time sloppy joe taste. The longer you cook it, the better it tastes too! I found this recipe on here quite a few years ago, and I've been making it ever since. It's awesome. It's that kind of sloppy joe you'd find at a church potluck, or at grandma's house. I've passed this recipe on to dozens of people, and I always share the story of it coming in with the electric bill!
