This is easy and so much better than the sloppy joe you buy in a can. Recipe is easily doubled and if you have any teen-agers around you'll need to double it!

Had this for dinner tonight, it was pretty good. Its a chunky and sweeter version of sloppy joes. My only complaints are that the splenda made it have an after-taste and the green peppers never really softened. So if I was to make it again, I'd use regular sugar (maybe only 1/8 cup) and I'd cook the peppers with the raw ground beef from the beginning. This recipe was very easy. Thanks for posting!

No more Canned sloppy joes for us! I used the mild diced tomatoes with chiles, since the little ones were eating. Threw in some chopped Vidalia onion- (it's just arrived here, and we love them). I was hoping for leftovers for lunch, but... no luck!! Thanks for a great kid-pleaser!
