We really enjoyed your tasty recipe Halcyon Eve. It was sooo good, I won't be buying mixes ever again. It was so quick and easy to make with great results. The sloppy joes were very flavorful and satisfying. I made the sauce as written using a hot chili powder which gave it a lovely heat. I didn't use buns but opted for recipe #417696, which worked beautifully with this dish. Thank you for sharing your recipe, that has gone into my keeper box. Made for Name that Ingredient Tag Game.
April 9, 2009: This recipe is what has made a sloppy joe lover out of me! loof suggested the recipe in the PAC thread while I was talking about making sloppy joes for DH & DS & how excited they'd be. I had everything easily on hand as well as a half of a red bell pepper to use up, so I threw that in too. I made recipe #183081 to go with them & this dinner was inhaled! Thanks loof for recommending it & thanks Eve for sharing it! We'll be using it again & again. UPDATE: Eve, we first tried your recipe 2 years ago and we've tried a few in between, but we keep coming back to yours and my family has begun comparing all others to it! :) I finally wore out my original print out of the recipe and when I came to print a new one for DH's dinner pick last night, I realized I had never taken a photo before! So I did and just wanted to post it for you. :)
