These 30 minute Sloppy Joes are my go-to when we have to have dinner and be out of the house within an hour. 

I love to serve these 30 minute Sloppy Joes with a sprinkle of grated cheese, and some veggies.

So if you want to kick it up a notch, try adding some Frank’s hot sauce to the mixture, or you could add diced jalapeno. 

Enjoy!
