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.
