    I’ve made this recipe many times. I use buffalo meat sometimes that give it a deeper flavor. We love the sloppy joes this recipe makes.

    Super tasty! I was a bit worried, because fam said they liked Manwich better than scratch sloppy joes, but I wanted to try it, and this recipe changed their minds! Quick and easy, might take down the sugar a bit next time

    These are the best! Complex flavor and great consistency. I served in pitas so filling would stay put and that worked out well, Thank you!

    Best Sloppy Joe's I've ever made or served. My local store did not have green chilies so I substituted a can of Rotel and added Red Bell Pepper. Not much left for leftovers..... My phone will not allow me to rate 5 Stars. I would rate it 5+

    This is the second I have made them! I asked the kids if I should make this again and it was a resounding YES! The second time around I really didn’t have to measure much- just went by memory- and I added some garlic powder- Montreal steak seasoning - and barbecue sauce! SO EASY! I never knew I liked sloppy joes as well!

    Loved it! I used red wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar and a couple shakes of Montreal steak seasoning. Kept everything else the same. Can’t beat the simplicity and you’re lucky if you happen to have a family that’ll eat sloppy joes (my picky crew won’t so I made it for my lunch and will freeze the leftovers) so mommas looking for something good and quick for dinner this is a great recipe.

    First time trying this out and the family loved it. I had to double up on the recipe so next time I will tweak it a bit to suit my personal preference. Tasty none the less.
