This sounded so good and it was delicious. I did use the ground turkey and liquid smoke like others had suggested and put it on hamburger buns with shredded cheese and shredded lettuce. It is very versatile-the next day I added a regular can of diced tomatoes, put it in a pie plate and sprinkled shredded cheese over it, baked until cheese melted and served it with tortilla chips as an appetizer. Thank you Rita for a great recipe!

I can't believe I forgot to rate this! We really, really liked your funky twist on sloppy joes. It provides that same comfort with an extra bit of sassiness! We try to make this instead of regular whenever we have chili sauce on hand. Thanks, Rita!

This was great! I added a little cumin, liquid smoke, and Worcestershire sauce, and left off the adobo since I didn't have any. I also used turkey instead of beef.Thanks so much!
