Homemade Sloppy Joes

It’s easier and faster to just open a can, but if you have a little time…

1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 T garlic
2 tspn. olive oil
1 lb hamburger
2 tspn. chili powder
1 tspn. cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small can tomato paste
1 T brown sugar
1/4 c. catsup
1/2 c. water

In a large skillet saute olive oil, onion, green peppers and garlic on medium heat until soft.

Add hamburger and cook thoroughly. Drain fat.

Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring, and cook on low heat until mixture thickens. Enjoy!

We had these on toasted hamburger buns with some buttered corn and watermelon on the side. Some of us even put cheddar cheese on our sloppy joes which made them extra yummy.

What did the family think? I liked them, hubby did not. Oldest child liked them, youngest did not.

Did I do change anything? I followed the recipe as is, but the next time I make them I think I will leave out the cinnamon.
