I made this lovely dish for my hubby. He loved it. Couldn't get enough of it. Loved the flavor and the texture of the chili cheese sloppy joes. Thank you for sharing a recipe that he will enjoy again. Made for Players Favorites - 5 Star Gems

Daily Inspiration

These sloppy joes were really tasty and a nice change of pace from what I normally make. At the last minute, DH didn't want the kidney beans so I apologize for leaving them out. The best part is that I have leftovers for a sandwich tomorrow.

This is a speedy dish, making it perfect to serve during a weeknight. I particularly liked the chili aspect integrated into a sloppy joe. Because I had tomatoes in the fridge that I needed to use up, used it instead of the canned tomatoes and added some cumin in addition to the chili powder. I particularly loved the fresh cilantro thrown in at the end. It does make more than 2 servings but used the remainder as a topping on nachos chips in the oven. Yum! Thank you Marra for sharing.

Well... I'm giving this five stars because I totally screwed up this easy recipe and it was still good! I dumped in the whole can of tomatoes and then had to cook all the liquid down. Still was a good meal. Yep. That's me.
