AWESOME!! I still added the small can of tomato paste, and added 1 TBLS (or more to taste) of brown sugar (we like the touch of sweetness it brings to the meal). GREAT STUFF! We liked topping our sloppy joes with cheese and/or pickles but they taste great as is!!



This is a version of my classic recipe. I dice-up a small onion & brown it together w/1lb. lean ground beef. Drain off any excess fat. Add 1/2tsp. salt, 1/4tsp. ground black pepper, 4T. catsup, 1tsp. wet or dry mustard, 1 can condensed Chicken Gumbo soup & 1/4c. water. You simmer without a lid for about 20min. Another variation is to use 1can vegetable soup & 1/4c. catsup, instead of the Chicken Gumbo soup. Make certain you let this thicken up!

I made this recipe back in the 60's when I was in Girl Scouts! I forgot about it until recently. Sometimes we just scoop this up with corn chips instead of putting it on buns. This is a good and easy recipe!!
