Smoky Chipotle Sloppy Joe's in 15 minutes

Smoky Chipotle Sloppy Joe's are everything you would think they would be and more.  Packed with rich smoky flavor with a little kick this is certainly not your mama's sloppy joe's.

I grew up in a loving home with 7 of us.  Mom and Dad both worked several jobs and to say we were on a shoe string budget is a an understatement.  I lived a blessed life, dont get me wrong, but with such a full house time was a hot comodity.  Occasionally my mom would prepare semi-homemade food.  Sloppy joe's were a favorite.  Straight from the can.  Pure messy deliciousness!  We could never get enough.

A moist delicious smoky sloppy joe was destined for greatness in Chad's eyes and Munchkin keeps asking for more Joe's.  They pass the family test.  Serve with a salad or corn and you have a quite and easy weeknight meal.

Ready as fast as the canned variety and so much better and so much healthier!  Smoky Chipotle Sloppy Joe's in 15 minutes - your childhood is calling!
