Grown up Sloppy Joes

Not just meat, manwich and a bun........ these have a little more to them. They were pretty tasty and Matt went back for seconds, so it was a success!

Grown up Sloppy Joes
Serves: 3

1. In a skillet brown up about 3/4 pound of ground whatever (we had chuck leftover so that'll work). Throw in a handful each of diced sweet onion, red pepper, and green pepper. Drain and put back on the burner.

2. Bust out a handy packet of sloppy joe seasoning (found in the seasoning section by the gravy and dressing packets). Throw that in with the amount of tomato paste and water it recommends (laugh in the packets face that it asks for 1 pound of meat). Simmer according to packet directions.

3. Toast a bun and put on a slice of pepper jack cheese and a fat slice of red onion. Top with the meat. Enjoy!

I find that the Not-So-Sloppy sloppy joe sauce is a bit tastier and spicer than the packets. Its usually near the soups, I think, and it comes in a small jar. If you're feeling brave, give it a try. Adult sloppy joes are a staple here.
