Texas Taco Joes

I love Sloppy Joes. Like the ones we made not too long ago. But, sometimes you want a new take on an old classic, and this is it.

These are ready in under 30 minutes. Perfect for a quick meal after a long day. I found the original recipe on the Kraft website.

Makes: 4 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
