We love sloppy joes in this house! I have pictures of both girls, very young, eating them… and I don't mean picking them apart, but actually picking the whole thing up and chowing down. Who doesn't love messy faces?
Start by browning up your ground meat of choice, we use extra lean beef. While waiting you can make your own taco seasoning. You can also you use a package of taco seasoning for this recipe.

- 1/4 tsp garlic powder

- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional, this is going to make it quite spicy!)

- 1 tsp sea salt

Once you have browned and drained the fat of off your ground meat of choice add the sloppy joe ingredients.
