My sons LOVE Sloppy Joes,when I saw Julia's dinner, today,I decided to post the recipe I like to use.These are approximate measurements as I don't measure when I cook. My family likes spicy,you can omit the pepper flakes if you want.My youngest son used to say,"Mom,why do you always have potato chips and carrot sticks when we have Sloppy Joes?" I don't know why I do,but I do!
