Sloppy Joses Recipe. The sauce couldn't be easier – a can of sauce, a can of beans, a can of Mexican-style corn and fresh browned ground beef. 

The slightly sweet, mildly spicy blend of sweet and sour tomato sauce and ground beef is given a sojourn south of the border in these easy, warm Sloppy Josés taco-bowls. The sauce couldn’t be easier – a can of sauce, a can of beans, a can of Mexican-style corn and fresh browned ground beef. It’s the same one-pot skillet meal your children crave, but with a little Mexican twist.

This recipe is part of Chef Andrew Schloss’ Edibly Fun, Easily Done series, a collection of nine kid-pleasing recipes.
