I don't think I have ever met anyone who does not like a good Sloppy Joe! I have met many people that think it only comes in a can, and is called Manwich :)
It actually is a recipe that you can play around with and make it as sweet and spicy as you like. It makes a great meal for having guests over for a hamburger/hotdog alternative. It is a very budget friendly meal that can serve a lot of people, just double the recipe.
This is also a dish you can make in the crock pot. If you use ground turkey breast no need to brown meat ahead of time. Just put all ingredients in crock pot mix together well and cook on low 3hrs high for 2hrs. Stirring occasionally.
I like to serve these with either Sweet Potato Fries or Red Potato Fries. You can also serve with different toppings such as cheese, and pickles. You can leave out the peppers and onions when you cook them, and let people put them on top instead.
I would love to hear from you and comments or suggestions. Enjoy!
