Don't let this list of ingredients intimidate you. These are easy and you probably have most of the items in your pantry. I have 3 teenagers and they have certain things that are always on the "ask for again" list. These sloppy joes are filled with a sweet and savory flavor that keeps them asking for more. Besides serving these on a traditional burger bun I put the mix on buttermilk biscuits with cheddar cheese & jalapenos. They really are yummy.

Dawn is right. Don't be intimidated by all the ingredients for these homemade sloppy joes. This recipe is really easy to throw together! It's full-bodied with a hint of sweetness and just a kick of spice. A simple dinner the entire family will love.
