This is not just another sloppy joe recipe. It is really yummy and my husband thinks they are the best ever. The side dish is Jane's Creamy Ranch Potatoes which are so super!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love a homemade sloppy joe recipe and this one is sweet and tangy. The mix has a lot of texture and flavor from all the fresh veggies. Top on a soft roll for a hearty and filling family dinner. Great for a weeknight when short on prep time. Very yummy!
