I made this to prove to my boyfriends family that you CAN make sloppy Joe's that aren't from a can. They all agreed that my joe's were better than 'Hunts' joe's. :) I didn't know what Chili sauce was, either, so I went to check out what was IN Taco Sauce.. It's just tomatoes and 3 kinds of peppers, so I just got a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce and added paprika, cayenne, black pepper, and crushed red peppers to the recipe. Also, while I was browning the meat, I fried up the onions and bell peppers in a separate pan. I added all the sauce ingredients to the onions once they were translucent, and let it simmer until the meat was done. Also, I was trying to make the batch size larger, so I used a pound of sausage, a whole large onion, and a whole large bell pepper. I had my boyfriend cut them, and he cheated a little by 'Slap-Chop'ing them.. But he did them up so small, it was hard to tell they were even in the recipe. Delicious! We will use this one again! Thanks Jeff!
