This is another recipe I use my Grandma Vinion's Peppers with Red Sauce in! It is absolutely delicious & once you have it this way, you won't want them any other way! My brother Loves my Sloppy Joe's & says no matter how hard he tries he just can't make them the way I do! I can guarantee if he shows up on a day I've made them, I have NO left-overs! He will eat them until they are gone! The best thing is, you can make them sweet or spicy depending on what peppers you add! I will post the peppers recipe link in the comment section of this post. Love sharing the ways to use these peppers!

How To Make homemade sloppy joe's with a delicious twist

    Add sauce & pepper mixture and stir in. Cook over low-medium heat 20-30 minutes or until heated through. If you want a little kick to your Sloppy Joe's use the hot peppers in Red Sauce. *******NOTE: If you don't have the peppers on hand.

    Serve on fresh hamburger buns with a slice of American Cheese! I make this recipe in large portions for parties. When I do, I brown meat, transfer to crock pot and add the sauce mixture & allow to cook on low for 4 hours. Then keep warm. Keeps well in a crock pot for those pot lucks or parties!
