Tex Mex SLoppy Joes

Again, this was a tasty meal that didn't take a lot of effort to create. My kids enjoy sloppy joes, especially since it is one of the few times we get to have chips with our meal! I just love a salty potato chip (especially the ruffled kind) with sloppy joes, I don't know what there is about that combo! I was worried about the heat factor with my kiddos and they didn't make a peep about it, just gobbled it right up... This is a meal that could easily be frozen for future use or thrown in the crockpot to heat through. Make it however is easiest and most convenient for you!
