Sloppy Joes

My mom made these on busy nights that called for quick and easy. Whether you are feeding a crowd, or just love the song, "Lunch-Lady Land" running through your head, these simple sandwiches are sure to please. Sloppy Joes... sloppy, Sloppy Joes, yeah.

1-2 lbs. hamburger
1 onion, chopped
3 T. flour
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. water
2 T. vinegar
1 heaping T. mustard, brown or yellow
4 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
*1/4 tsp. chipotle chile powder
*1/2 c. green bell pepper, diced
hamburger buns

Brown hamburger with onion in saute pan on MED HI. Add flour and stir well. Add ketchup, water, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, salt, and remaining ingredients. Stir and let simmer on MED until thick. Serve on hamburger buns with a side of COLESLAW or carrot sticks. Serves 6-8.

Help! What is chipotle chile powder?

Chipotle chile powder is a spicy smoked chile powder. Mine is from McCormick. It is an optional ingredient in this recipe, so if you don't have it, don't worry! Your sloppy joes will still be deliciously sloppy!
