  • “I used this recipe at a shelter for homeless women and children.They rated it 5 stars!”

  • “Made for Saturday night supper and for 5 a day – fruit and veggie event in the photo forum.We loved it, I didn’t have a can of chili to use so I used a can of “chili style” kidney beans, also had no tomato sauce in so I used hot and spicy pizza sauce, they both worked very well.Next time I would add a few red pepper flakes to give a little more kick.We enjoyed them very much thanks for posting.”

  • “This was a great recipe.I was just wondering if you typically use chili without beans for this?I didn’t think about it and the can I picked up was actually chili beans.Made for a strange site (beans in the sloppy joe 😉 but it was very good! I thought the corn was a nice touch. Thanks!”
