If you’re a fan of sloppy joes, you absolutely HAVE to try this recipe.  Its an *exclusive* guest post over at Skinny Ms. Slow Cooker.  I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve made it at home.  Brent and I both love it!

The amount of sweetness is perfect, and its even great served over rice or in a wrap if you want to forgo the bun.  Instead of making it in the slow cooker, you can also easily make the recipe on the stove in a skillet in less than 30 minutes.  I’ve made it numerous times that way, and its equally delcious!

If you want to make it vegetarian, you could also make it with your favorite ground meat substitute. I’m sure it would be great as well.  Its really the sauce that makes it!
