My family loves sloppy Joes! I've tried many ways of making them, and this one is by far the tastiest! The Rotel & cayenne pepper really give it a kick. Why buy canned anymore, it's so bland? This recipe is sure to become a favorite. It's fast and easy to make. I like to serve it w/homemade fries in the oven. Enjoy!
