Nice sloppy Joe recipe. We enjoyed them on sugar free whole wheat rolls with broccoli and peas. Fairly mild taste, I used splenda instead of sugar.

DH and I enjoyed this one. It is pretty mild as far as the spiciness goes (I did use Mexican ketchup) but the addition of pickled jalapenos rather than sweet pickles made it piquant enough for our tastes. They would also be great with a slice of pepper jack cheese on top, I think. I halved the recipe and got enough for 4 nicely filled large-size hamburger buns. Thanks for posting!
