Sloppy Joe’s are an All American Classic sandwich full of hamburger, onion, pepper and a tangy sauce.
This recipe certainly takes me back to my childhood, although the recipe my Mom used to make is a bit different than my recipe. I add a bit off BBQ sauce, sweet pickle relish and apple cider vinegar to give the sandwich a unique and delicious tangy flavor.
I use ground chuck to reduce the amount of fat in the sandwich and I add in peppers to incorporate more vegetables. I like to find ways to add more vegetables into my recipes. If you have kids that don’t like to eat their vegetables, this is a good trick to have up your sleeve.
Rather than serving the Sloppy Joe’s on a bun, you can also serve this on top of tortilla chips with cheddar cheese melted on top. All you need to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees, line a baking sheet with tortilla chips, top the chips with the hot Sloppy Joe mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 7-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
