    Mille®'s Note:

    Smokey but still sloppy! Different flavour than most Sloppy Joes and, in my humble opinion, this one gets "thumbs up"!

      Very tasty! I had made a huge batch of sofrito, so I used that as the base, with a little added cilantro. I had no liquid smoke so I used a teaspoon of smoked paprika which did the trick. This is a recipe you can play with. Thanks Mille!

      This is fantastic! One of my favorites on the website so far. I added a little cumin, liquid smoke, and Worcestershire sauce and left off the adobo since I didn't have any. We ate them as sloppy joes, but would be great served on rice. I also used turkey instead of beef. Thanks Mille for posting!
