Sloppy Joes are not easy to eat--that's half the fun for kids of all ages. Adults who like spicy food can add hot sauce at the table. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine. This recipe is delicious! It also is very, very versatile. It's been used for sloppy joes, also combined with rice and used as a filling for stuffed peppers. Put it in a tortilla and top it with salsa and cheese. You can put it in spaghetti sauce and serve it over pasta. It makes a lot, so I can have sloppy joes the first night and use it in a different dish the second night. This recipe freezes well too!
