I'm choosing these sandwiches as my Afternoon Snack for older kids. I have a teenager and when there are some days when just chicken nuggets will make him happy (like 20 of them) others days he wants something a bit more substantial to carry him all the way to dinner. This is that snack.
Keep in mind that there would be plenty left over for the next day or it you want to make this recipe for dinner, just serve it with your usual side of greens and you will be all set in about 30 minutes or less. Do you add cheese to your Sloppy Joes? My kids add cheese to everything! Pepper Jack is the choice for this one here!
I hope you enjoy this summery treat on a classic. My kids have heat on their veins so even the little one enjoys some zing once in a while. Feel free to adjust the heat factor to your family's needs. It won't change the overall taste of this Caribbean Sloppy Joe! Everything you cook for your family and friends tastes better with your imagination and a Pinch of Love!
