A sloppy Joe like no other! You can make this in a crock pot but you will need to start the recipe in a skillet firstly, then transfer to the crock pot. This is a thick rich tomato-based recipe with intense flavors, that only gets better the longer it is simmered! If you want a plain-tasting Sloppy Joe then this recipe is not for you, I developed this recipe and has become a family favorite! Use only Hamburger Helper Chili-Macaroni flavor for this! Adjust the jalapeno pepper amount (if using) to suit heat level. I serve this on my homemade cheese buns (recipe#182417) that have been sliced in half and spread with a garlic-butter Parmesan cheese mixture, then baked in the oven for about 10 minutes to crisp slightly and heat, but you can top the mixture on just plain buns, but the garlic buns are better! This recipe makes a ton but can easily be frozen to use for a next meal. This is even better if made a day ahead!
