This is my husband’s all-time favorite dinner. Last night I asked him what he wanted for dinner and of course, he chose sloppy joes. I can’t complain though because they are so delicious! I make my own sauce so I know exactly what I’m putting in it and add lots of cut up, sautéed veggies to the meat mixture. A little hot sauce on top and it’s the perfect combo of sweet and heat. Last night we had it on double protein bread, but today for lunch, I decided to put it on a homemade coconut protein tortilla. The two paired fabulously and I definitely recommend trying this one out!
