You can get some sloppy joes cooking in the slow cooker instead. This is perfect if you want to just get your dinner cooking earlier on in the day.
If you’re looking to add a few more vegetables to this dish then some diced celery and bell pepper works great. Add these at the same time you fry the onion.
This is probably not a recipe you would be cooking if you’re concerned about the nutritional information but I have still calculated for anyone who is curious. This is an estimate so it may not be completely accurate.
If you don’t have any hamburger buns then this still goes great with some nice crispy tortilla chips. If you really want to go one step further then you can top it with some shredded cheese.
