A spicy and simple sloppy joe

This recipe comes from my wife's mom, who got it from her mother-in-law in western New York state. It's very easy to make and tastes a lot better than any mix.


(Serves 4)


  1. In a frying pan, brown ground beef and onion.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and cook slowly for 15 minutes or more.
  3. Serve hot by scooping the mixture onto toasted buns.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 15 minutes cooking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
