Cheesy BBQ Sloppy Joes

Until the other night, I think the last time that I had eaten a sloppy joe was at summer camp. Man-o-man had I forgotten just how delicious they really are! This recipe is so easy and will make enough to have sloppy joe's for the rest of the week (and don't think we didn't eat every last morsel). I tend to be a baby when it comes to spice and the pickled jalapenos add just the right amount of punch to the BBQ based sauce. Top your joe with shredded cheddar cheese and serve them with tater tots and a side salad and you really might be able to picture yourself back at camp!
