    Delicious, satisfying, and easy. I increased the onion to 3/4 c and doubled the chipolte powder for more flavor. I also used hot & spicy pickles. I think a couple of dashes of Tabasco would add nice heat, if you prefer spicier dishes.

    Delicous!! I didn't have cheese or chipotle pepper. I substituted another pepper and they still turned out great! I'll definitely make them again.

    I did not like this recipe. My husband did though. It had no flavor to me and took a bit more time than I thought. I would toast the hamburger buns because ours were all soggy by the time they got from the kitchen to the table.

    Like several others, I doubled the meat and probably tripled the spices. I used a can of the diced tomatoes with onion and green pepper along with a can of Rotel and salt-free ketchup. Let it simmer for a bit so all the flavors could build a little more. Served it with a green salad and oven-baked parmesean garlic potato wedges. Came out perfect - can't wait for leftovers today now that the meat and spices have had more time to hang out and develop!

    This is tasty, however I agree it needs more spices the next time I make it. Also a great meat budget stretcher over sloppy joes with the kidney beans. I forgot the the cheese (senior moment during middle age) and still liked it. Throw in a salad to complete this meal. I used Ancho chili pepper instead on the chipotle beacause it's what I had.

    Ok recipe, not my favorite one, though. Will probably not make it again.

    I cooked the meat in the skillet and then added it and the remaining ingredients (through tomatoes) to my slow cooker. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes. When the mixture was hot I tested it and then added some prepared mustard, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. After my additions I thought it was really good and great to prepare in the crock pot so there was no extra prep besides toasting the HB buns. I gave it 3 stars b/c I had to alter it a bit at the end... otherwise would have given it 4 stars. I used the leftovers on a taco salad the next day.

    I added a can of chili to the meat and in turn left out the beans and tomatoes trying to use ingredients I had on hand. I did feel like it was still a little bland even with the spices so I too added worcestershire sauce. It was an ok dish for an easy going night.

    This is a great weeknight meal...easy, quick and healthy. I tend to find sloppy joes too sweet so this was much more to my liking. Spoon it over a hotdog for a great chili dog.

    This recipe was okay. Needed more seasoning than it called for. Probably will not make this again.
