I'm a home cook who loves my food to easy and great. I love sharing my findings and passing them along. Enjoy!

Sloppy Joe is a Old Favorite.

Hey Y'all, It's Jessica and I don't know about you but I grew up with sloppy joe. It has always been a staple in my home. My mom used to use Manwich to make hers. So simple and so good, but you know something was always missing I think. After a while, your taste buds get used to it and your like,

"I love this, but can it be a little better?"

I say yes, it can be better. I started looking at how to make it from scratch. Now I love making things from scratch. There is nothing like a home-cooked meal from scratch. Everything just tastes better, fresher, yes it is sometimes a little more work, but believe me, it is worth it.

Relax and take a breath this not that kind of hub. This recipe is so ridiculously easy it will make your head spin. You will be cooking this in no time.

Disclaimer: this is not my recipe. I'm just passing it along. So enjoy!


What You Will Need

1. 2 pounds of ground beef (You can use less, just adjust measurements)

2. 1 15oz. Can of Hunts Tomato paste

3. 1 tbsp of Red Wine Vinegar

4. 1 tbsp of Worcheshire SauJse

5. 4 oz cubed Cream Cheese

6. 1 tbsp steak seasoning

7. 1/4 cup of Brown sugar

8. Large green bell pepper diced

9. Large yellow onion diced

10. 3 cups of Colby jack cheese, shredded

11. A bag of Tostitos (for dipping)

12. (Optional) french bread a little toasted

13. An oven-safe pan

Step 1: Prep Your Food

The first thing you want to do is to grate your cheese or use a Food Processor to slice 3 cups of cheese. You will be saving one cup for later.

Second: Slice or grate bell pepper (remove the seeds and all unwanted parts.)

Third: Slice or grate the yellow onion

Fourth: You want to cube up 4oz of cream cheese. (The cream cheese usually comes in 8oz box, so what I do is cut it in half. Then I cut one half into cubes. We do this because it will help the cheese melt evenly.)

Now set aside all your ingredients.

Time for the Great Browning

Now that you have all your prep done, it's time to get your meat cooking. So put your meat in a nice size pan and brown it. Please for the love of god do not burn it. Cook your meat on medium-high heat. As it's cooking you want to cut it down with a spatula or spoon. Mind the kind of pan you are using. If it's a non-stick, use a wooden or something that doesn't scratch the surface. This process will take a few minutes. It will take more if you are working with frozen meat. After it has cooked and is cut down it should look like taco meat. We don't want big pieces, so at this point, if you see any; break them down.

Add Your Ingredients

After draining any excess juice from the beef, put it back on the burner and add your yellow onion. We want to add the onion first because the onion is going to take time to cook down. You don't want the onion to get too dark, just soft; and when that happens then add the green bell pepper and let that cook down as well. At this point, you should have a beautiful pan of brown, green, and white. Make sure to keep stirring and mixing.

Now, you're going to add the steak seasoning. Mix that up and make sure to cut down any remaining big chunks; if you haven't done so. After it's good and mixed, let it cook a second or two before tasting it. Always taste your food, so you know what you're getting. You should also taste your food in stages. If it needs more steak seasoning now is a great time to add it.

It's time to add the rest of the ingredients. The tomato sauce, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Mix that all in and let that cook down for a moment. When it's all mixed up. Turn down the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes. Giving the ingredients time to soak into the meat. At this point, the dish should be smelling oh so good.

Adding Cheesy Goodness

Now its time for my favorite part. The adding of the cheese. Remember to taste your food. Ok, now add your cream cheese.

Next, we add the two cups of cheese. Add that in and let all that meltdown. Mix it up and let that just soak in. Finally, add the last cup of cheese and sprinkle that all over. Then we are going to put the pan in the oven on broil for about 5 to 6 minutes. Keep your eye on it because you don't want to burn it.

Finish Product and Enjoy

You should have a beautiful dish that will be like a party in your mouth. start digging in with your chips or bread and enjoy. Let me know if this recipe worked out for you because it is a new must in my home.
