Chicken Legs loves Sloppy Joes. I am not a huge fan. I make them for him, but I haven’t really found “the recipe” for me. Well, this might be it. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and traced the original back to Taste of Home. It was super quick and really delicious.
I was had my concerns when I made this. I thought there was way too much liquid in the pan. I didn’t give up on it. I let it simmer uncovered for about 10-15 minutes and it thickened up perfectly. The level of heat in these Sloppy Joes will all depend on how hot the salsa is that you use. I used Trader Joe’s salsa and this wasn’t overly spicy. If you are sensitive to heat, be sure to use a mild salsa.
