Super Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

"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
