A real quick, kid-friendly recipe. Served over hamburger buns it is a little less sweet and/or spicy than most sloppy Joes. It is also good served over rice. I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it's a quick dinner from ingredients I always have on hand.

My family always asks what Recipezaar recipe I will be making next. This time I got to tell them 'I'm making Wang Doodle!' It was good for a laugh. The sloppy joe was real good. I used 1 tablespoon of sugar because I thought I would like it a little sweeter.

I'll admit I only looked at this recipe because of the title. I'm glad I did because then I tried it, and it was very easy and oh so good. I'll never buy the sloppy joe stuff in a can again!

Oh, so quick and tasty. This is so easy to prepare it is ridiculous. We ate this over hamburger buns. DH and I really enjoyed this. Of course, I can't read properly and only sliced the celery. It was still good. Thanks.
