  1. This turned out really well! I substituted a cayenne and cubanelle pepper for the green pepper and celery. I also used fake meat instead of ground beef chuck but nonetheless it turned out great.
  2. These were suberb I had two that night as did everbody else.
  3. Tip: If you are thinking of leaving out a veggie because your kids don't like peppers onions celery etc try putting them in the blender. They get all the nutrition and don't even know it! Also I used 4 tomatoes instead of soup and just pureed all the veggies together. YUM! So many invisible veggies!
  4. This tasted nothing like sloppy joes....we had 4 adults try it and none liked it maybe for hot dogs.
  5. Super easy and so yummy! I left out the green pepper since my little ones don't care for it. I loved the cumin in it! I went ahead and used a whole two cans of tomato soup so none would go to waste and it was just perfect.
  6. I didn't care for these at all. I will eat it but won't make these again. These were bland and just didn't have much flavor. Something was off but I culdn't figure out what. Maybe the condensed soup taste? The celery? I'm not sure what wasn't right exactly. These had no tang no zip no - Read more ...
  7. these were okay. I like mine a little sweeter! i added ketchup and some brown sugar.
  8. Just made this tonight and it was terific! What a great idea to use tomato soup- soooo yummy!!! Will definitely make these again.
  9. My husband always buys the canned mix, but we will no longer! Very good & super easy. I only had to modify the recipe slightly because I didn't have time to go to the store & that was that I didn't have a pepper, so it was omitted & I used a 'hearty' tomato soup, - Read more ...
