  1. Really quick and delicious. This was perfect for a hot evening since it's one pan and cooks quickly. I don't really like dijon mustard but I wanted to be true to the recipe so I added it. You can't detect it specifically and it probably did add to the overall taste so I am glad - Read more ...
  2. The first bite was delicious. Next time I'll cut the vinegar in half! Wowza!
  3. made as written very good.but next time I will use less catsup and will add 1/2 tsp chili powder and some garlic powder
  4. Make a double batch and freeze it for another time....try this so good! This tasted so different from the canned stuff nice rich flavors.
  5. I truly enjoyed this recipe. I was afraid the salsa might make it taste too "southwest" but it was just right... and I didn't have to add onions as I do on the recipe I usually use. It's tangy and sweet as sloppy joes are supposed to be. This one is a keeper.
  6. Made these tonight on the advice of several on the RE and they didn't disappoint. I made a double batch and froze half for another time. I didn't measure the ketchup or salsa and think I might have used a bit less than the recipe states but I definitely got all the flavor. I also - Read more ...

Now, I’m thinking that canned versions simply can’t compete with the real thing, plus … well, why waste money at the market when this dish is quick, easy & inexpensive?

  9. Wow. Seriously. This is THE only sloppy joe recipe I have ever liked. EVER. My picky husband even said they were REALLY REALLY good. Amazing! I did add some onion and hamburger seasoning to adjust for our tastes a bit, but it was only a bit!
  10. I really like the addition of chunky salsa in this recipe instead of regular tomato sauce. I used thick and chunky hot salsa it was great. I served it on homemade rolls and with crisp potato wedges on the side. The entire family loved this one even our picky 2 year old. Thanks!!
