I made this it was so good I did not add mustard but I did brown sliced onion to put on top of bun before adding sloppy joes for those who do not like onions.

It wasn't too bad. My husband didn't like it at all. Not sure what he didn't like.

I love this it tasted like manwich but it home made from what I had in my kitchen I just had to buy the chilie sauce and the hamburger

I had a different kind of chili sauce and turned out very spicy so I have to try this over again with a different chili sauce.But other than that it was tasty!

excellent recipe...in addition to the onions ,pepper, mixed in 1/4 cup fine chopped celery

This is the recipe my mother always used, so it's my favorite.

Had no 'Chili Sauce' on hand so subbed in Sriracha Ketchup and wow this was good, sweet and just the right level of spicy kick for everyone.

It wasn't too bad. My husband didn't like it at all. Not sure what he didn't like.

Will definitely make it again!

Very good. I did not add onions or peppers. Definitely will next time.
