Well, this didn't taste at all like a traditional sloppy joe (I've made them before with brown veggie crumbles and a mix), but we both liked this, thank you:) I used a lite firm tofu packed in water, and forgot to buy a green pepper. I was afraid my BF would be put off by the color (he WAS recently put off by a yellow tomato sauce I had made), but he didn't mind it at all! I think it was the chili sauce that made it taste different, not really the tofu. Anyway, we love tofu and ate this with a fork. Thanks for a different kind of sloppy joe!
