Any vegetarians in your family?

While hubby was scanning recipes (yes, he likes to help me along by finding new dishes for me to try) he came across one he thought he and I both would like.  While it is a Sloppy Joe spicy dish with no meat, it sounds delicious.  And for those of you who just have to have some meat for your dinner, let me recommend that you just brown some up and add to it as it is a very versatile recipe that you can make your own by changing up or adding to the recipe.  We will be trying it.   not only does it sound delicious, it has a certain heat level I love, and it uses Texas Pete hot sauce, two varieties in fact, of which my husband loves.  So we both should like this one.  And if you are cutting carbs by not eating breads, eat a Sloppy Joe lettuce wrap – it works just about any way you want it to.  We plan on trying it this weekend, along with some grilling out.  

And as a side note, we made the “Chipotle Salsa Baked Chicken” and it is so good – i believe I will be making it again!  that chipotle salsa is so good….but it does have some heat to it so just keep that in mind if you make it….recipe posted in “chicken” section.  Give it a try, also!

Have a great weekend!
