Easy Sloppy Joes Recipe--Gluten Free

This easy sloppy joes recipe is a quick meal, perfect for busy weeknights and adventurous campouts.  The rich tangy sauce has the delicious chili flavor you’re looking for in one of America’s original comfort foods.

Double the batch and make it up ahead of time.  Then, freeze the leftovers for a heat-and-serve savory satisfaction on those days when you don’t want to cook.

Get creative and change up the flavors.

Throw in some sautéed chopped Anaheim or yellow bell peppers.

Use a different flavor of Tabasco™ sauce, such as habanero or chipotle or add a few drops of liquid smoke.

Make it gourmet by topping your easy sloppy joes with crumbled bleu cheese, grated pepper jack or smoked Gouda.

For a complete, highly nutritious meal, serve with a tossed green salad.
