      I'm not adding any stars to this recipe, because it really didn't meet my expectations, but it was really good!! I was expecting something a little closer to a "traditional" sloppy joe, but this recipe has nothing to bind it together. It is very chunky, rather like a chili without the tomato sauce. We put part of it over hamburger buns, open-faced as suggested, and the buns were really lost. I had extra to freeze, and instead of buns, I cooked up some elbow macaroni and mixed it in. I wanted to use egg noodles, but came up short. It was quite good with the elbows, and it has a nice kick with the peppers. So, while it didn't turn out like I thought it would, it's definitely a keeper, easy to freeze for a quickie dinner.
