Great recipe, the family loved, I will definitely make again. I might add some more vegetables next time; the peppers and onions were great, but I love lots of veggies. Goes great on a bun with some cheddar cheese or as leftovers with rice!

Very tasty, easy to prepare recipe. I added a couple squirts of ketchup to give it more of a traditional sloppy joe taste. I went easy on the chili powder - have a 4 & 2 year old - and they both enjoyed it as well. Served them on lightly toasted onion rolls. Thanks for a yummy recipe!
