"My family loves Sloppy Joes, so I came up with this recipe. It works well with just about any combination of vegetables. When I want a change from bell pepper and celery, I substitute a package of broccoli slaw, chopped eggplant, and shredded carrots." -Rebecca Fulcher, Monument, CO

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic; cook 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in water and next 10 ingredients (through mushrooms); bring to a boil.
