Tuesday's Tip: Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes/Tasty Ideas for Adding Variety to Sloppy Joes

Logan loves Sloppy Joes and would eat them everyday!
I have tried to come up with a few ways to use this meat mixture that will offer a bit of variety. 

Here are couple of ways to serve Sloppy Joes that I have previously shared:


Here are a few other ideas:

Use Sloppy Joe meat as a topping for baked potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese, chopped green onions and a dollop of sour cream.

Use Sloppy Joe meat as a topping for nacho. Spoon meat over tortilla chips, sprinkle with shredded cheese and zap in the microwave for a few seconds.

Spoon Sloppy Joe meat onto a tortilla, sprinkle with shredded cheese, add a dollop of sour cream, and roll up.

Spoon Sloppy Joe meat into a taco shell. Serve with lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese and sour cream.

Add an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce to Sloppy Joe meat and ladle over hot pasta. Serve with French bread and a salad.

Get creative with your Sloppy Joe recipe. Here is a Tex-Mex version that our family really likes. It can also be used with the ideas above:
