Campbell's Soup-Sloppy Joes

Campbell's Soup-Sloppy Joes created by Cindi M Bauer

This recipe is from my 1970 and 1976 Campbell Soup Cookbook (Cooking with Soup). The added ingredient that makes these sloppy joes taste good, is the chili powder (providing you add 1-1/2 teaspoons). I like mine topped with a bit of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

Ready In:
35mins

ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion (I only added 3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery (I only added 1/2 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (I added 1-1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 5 -6 hamburger buns
  • shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

directions

  • In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, onion, and celery, in the shortening.
  • (I used 85% ground chuck for this recipe, so I didn't have to add any shortening, when cooking the beef and vegetables).
  • Drain off the excess grease.
  • Season the cooked beef and vegetables, with the spices.
  • Stir in the tomato soup.
  • Cover skillet, and simmer to blend flavors.
  • (I simmered mine for for 30 minutes; stirring frequently.).
  • Serve sloppy joes on hamburger buns topped with some shredded cheddar cheese, if desired.
  • Note: I thought the sloppy joes tasted even better reheated the next day. You could really taste the chili powder in the sloppy joes a bit more.

    No need for shortning - delicious! I used chopped green pepper instead of celery and no need for cheese! So good and simple!
