Sloppy Joe Mamas

Recipe by  

"I grew up a Manwich® kid, thinking they were the same as sloppy joes. I was dead wrong. This is the real deal. Messy, yummy, kid-friendly perfection especially on a cold night."

I think this may be one of those recipes that needs to be tweaked to your own personal tastes. When I saw “El Pato,” I thought Y-E-S, this is going to be a different sloppy joe, and it was. El Pato is available in my area in the spicy Salsa de Jalapeno (green can) and Salsa de Chile Fresco (hotter) in the yellow can. I had the Salsa de Jalapeno on hand, so that’s what I used. I followed the instructions, tasted, and we wanted something a little spicier. I added some more of the tomato sauce and even a good sprinkle of cayenne, as well as some salt and pepper. Don’t think for a minute traditional “sloppy joes,” otherwise, you may be disappointed. We didn’t, and we weren’t, and they were good!

This was the BEST Sloppy Joe recipe! I too grew up on canned sloppy joes. Ick Instead of a slow cooker, I used my simmer plate on my cooktop (2 hours). Served with Wickles Pickles, French's fried onions, and on a Hawaiian Roll. Delish!

I give this recipe a 5 because it was simple and delicious. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so i improvised. I only used ketchup, mustard, sugar in the raw, vinegar and chili powder and it still turned out delicous. A lot healthier plus it does not disappoint on flavor. Just double or triple the recipe for sloppier joes..lol. Definitely a quick recipe for those lazy days!!! This recipe will be my go to recipe for manwich or sloppy joes.
