Sloppy Joe Mamas
March 15, 2014

I think this may be one of those recipes that needs to be tweaked to your own personal tastes. When I saw “El Pato,” I thought Y-E-S, this is going to be a different sloppy joe, and it was. El Pato is available in my area in the spicy Salsa de Jalapeno (green can) and Salsa de Chile Fresco (hotter) in the yellow can. I had the Salsa de Jalapeno on hand, so that’s what I used. I followed the instructions, tasted, and we wanted something a little spicier. I added some more of the tomato sauce and even a good sprinkle of cayenne, as well as some salt and pepper. Don’t think for a minute traditional “sloppy joes,” otherwise, you may be disappointed. We didn’t, and we weren’t, and they were good!
