    This is one of the best recipes I have made. The flavor was great. Don't forget to add the red pepper flakes.

    This is so good! I omitted the garlic, tabasco, and tomato paste. I added more chili powder and Red pepper flakes. Made coleslaw with it and put the slaw on my sandwich! I missed sloppy joes, the new spicy version is heaven! I could go for some crispy crowns with this too!

    Tangy and delicious! I added a little more peppers and put them in a little later to keep some of the crunch! But this was a whole-family pleaser :)

    Best ever. We no longer make them any other way.
    My husband, almost 2 y.o. and I loved it! A little sweet and heat, making it the perfect balance. I will never buy canned sloppy joe sauce again. I highly recommend!

    A bit disappointed. It was Too Sweet. I will only add 1 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar next time. Had to add some apple cider vinegar to cut the sweerness. Still a bit sweet.

    Excellent! Made this recipe several times. A big hit for lunch and dinner.

    My whole family loves these sloppy joes! Why I love them is because my teenager (very picky eater) makes them & devours them!! Win & win!
    This will definitely be my go-to recipe for Sloppy Joes!

    My favorite sloppy joe recipe hands down! Whole family loved it!!
    Amy Renee 2 years ago
    Kids loved it! Omitted the green pepper, doubled onion. A little on the sweet side for me. Probably packed the sugar too much. Definitely make again.

    My wife, who was a little hesitant because it wasn't Manwich, was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't too saucy. Simple and good.

    Amazing! I did add the tomato paste and a few drops of worchestire sauce. We don’t like it too sweet. The red pepper flakes added just enough spice. And I kept the seeds from the green peppers in there which gave it plenty of flavor! Excellent recipe, will make again
