Awesome Sloppy Joes

This is my first time contributing to this blog, but I couldn't pass this one up. We decided to make Sloppy Joes for dinner, but without a can of Manwich, I was at a loss. (I know, it's sad really... but I'm learning!!!) So I googled "Sloppy Joe Recipes" and came across one that had salsa in the ingredient list and knew that that's the one! (We just finished making a batch of fresh homemade salsa) It's delish!!

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes (

1 lb. ground burger (we used buffalo, but I'm sure what ever you prefer is great!)
1 1/2 c. ketchup
1 c. chunky salsa (I used our homemade salsa)
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. white vinegar
2 T. Dijon (or spicy) mustard
1 T. hot sauce (we left this out for the kids sake and just added it to the adults sandwiches)

**(I also added one large green bell pepper and it was SO good)

Season and brown your burger, drain. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for about 20-30 minutes to let the liquid thicken up and serve! Enjoy!!!
