A little of the same old same old is just fine for me. It becomes comforting to go back to childhood favorites and share them with your kids. Sloppy joes are the ultimate in comfort food but I needed a bit more this go around! These were spicy but I went back for seconds because I so enjoyed the flavor. If you don’t like messing with the classics these probably are not for you. But if you like throwing caution to the wind and piling on the chillies …welcome!
One can Rotel, drained
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2-3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground beef over medium heat. While browning mix all ingredients in bowl except Rotel.
Drain ground beef and rinse. Add Rotel and cook 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over you favorite hamburger buns. This was enough to feed myself and my little one with a serving left over but you could always double the recipe.
I loved this recipe and it’s frugal cant beat that!
