Sloppy Joes

I know what your thinking...Sloppy Joes...really?
Yeah...I went there!
If you are like my cringe at the thought of Sloppy Joes...that and Meatloaf.
The second you bite into forgot how much you loved it:)  
That's how it works in my house at least.  They chowed down on this meal!  All picky eaters loved them!
I found this recipe on Allrecipes awhile ago and have changed it a bit to my liking.
One thing I do to make it that much better...Toast those buns!!  And add cheese, of course:)

 This recipe is so quick and probably always have the ingredients on hand.
Just brown your meat with onion and green pepper...then add everything else!
 Hope you enjoy!  Do you have a meal your family complains about and then they end up loving it??
