Our adult taste-testers described this dish as mildly hot. If your family prefers less kick, adjust the amount of pickled jalapeños (and liquid from the jar) to suit their tastes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return cooked beef to skillet.

Step 2

Stir in tomatoes, next 3 ingredients, and, if desired, jalapeños and liquid. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve mixture on toasted buns.

Step 3

Note: For testing purposes only, we used KC Masterpiece Original Barbecue Sauce.

I've rated this a few years ago and still agree with it! We love it, family and friends love it, and I'm still taking it to the Legion whenever I've signed up for making a dish for Sunday football fans. I have not altered it - it is perfect for anyone that can take a little bit of heat. I hope you enjoy it just as much as all of us do, but make it like the recipe says the first time you prepare it! If you don't like the "kick" - then alter it to your taste or use less jalapeno and juice than called for. I think you'll be glad you did.

My hubby has loved sloppy joes since he was a kid in the 70s so I thought I'd make this for him. We BOTH loved this. It's by far the best sloppy joe recipe I've ever made. I did add one chopped onion to the burger when browning though, and it came out fantastic. Thanks for sharing your recipe Richard! : )

This was good. I didn't use worchester sauce since I was out and it still tasted good. Family liked it. Had a nice kick to it without using the hot peppers.

Delicious for a quick dinner. I took Christy Jordan's advice (on the video) and substituted pickle relish for the jalapenos. Definitely a keeper! =^..^=
