Seriously Good Sloppy Joes

I love sloppy joes and they are a quick and easy meal. They are usually also very kid friendly. A while ago Kim at Mac's Kitchen Adventure's shared with me this recipe. Let's just say we will never go back to the canned version again!

Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground meat(turkey, beef, chicken)
1 onion, minced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp vinegar
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper

Brown meat with onion, garlic, and gr. pepper. Drain. Add in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 15 mins.

**I have used 2 tbsp more of ketchup instead of tomato paste and has been fine.
