Caribbean Sloppy Joes Recipe

Caribbean Sloopy Joes Recipe, a touch spicy and heat will bring sandwich to a level out of this world. If you like the flavor of Caribbean Tropical Islands, this is a mix for you!
Hola Amigos! This recipe is a twist on your classic Sloppy Joe Sandwich in the sense that the sauce it's not coming from your typical can. Nothing wrong with that though, but when you have the extra time, why not make something special for the family.
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.
Caribbean Sloppy Joes Recipe, Let's not forget our older kids in Junior High and High School, even the ones going back to college, let's treat them to this new Bold Flavor. Sweet and Spicy is sure to wake their taste buds!


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!

Besitos,
Lizy

    1. LOL...hey girl..the can says you get a full serving of veggies...I'm not quite sure about that, but sometimes a little change is good and welcome. I'm finding myself getting sick with sauces and soups out of cans for some reason.
