Easy Sloppy Joes

I am a fan of Manwich like many others for sloppy joes. It is great for easy sloppy joes, however, I always added extra onions and peppers the Manwich.

 

I wanted a sloppy joes recipe that had a sweeter taste, but also the chunky onions and peppers I prefer in sloppy joes. I needed to create easy sloppy joes that are homemade.

    Loving this easy and oh so tasty recipe. Reminds me of the 1st time I tried root beer in my teens when a new American owned burger restaurant opened locally, it was so exciting and became a regular haunt!
