This is a variation on my daughters sloppy joe with several ways of serving it

Step 1: why sloppy jose?

Why am I calling it sloppy jose? because sloppy joe is already taken AND I used a blend of spices I generally use for tacos and burritos. If you want the "recipe"  it's here http://www.instructables.com/id/taco-seasoning-recipe/ I might use a little more or a little less of different spices and I use a mesquite liquid smoke as well as mr's dash steak and chicken seasonings
Another good one, sir.
We have a Sloppy Jose recipe in my family as well. We take left over taco meat, add our version of sloppy joe sauce to it and wrap it up in burrito shells with some cheese and finely shredded cabbage. The kids really enjoy it.
I should probably use more shredded lettuce or cabbage in my wraps and tacos but I can't eat enough by myself to avoid a lot of waste. What do you use in your sloppy joe sauce?
The trick to get my boy to eat his cabbage is to cover it in meat and cheese. <br> I make my sloppy joe sauce with plain tomato sauce seasoned with cumin, crushed red chili flakes, and some brown sugar or honey for a little sweetness.
I used to hide all kinds of grated veggies in meatloaf or casseroles. I'll have to try the tomato sauce instead of ketchup <br>
