One of my favorite comfort foods – the Sloppy Joe. I think I have always loved them, especially topped with diced white onion and cheddar cheese on very soft bread. It’s the best stuff-your-mouth-because-you’re-so-hungry-and-it’s-just-the-best-food. It’s not gourmet or expensive, it’s just really good food. These Sloppy Joes get an upgrade with Mango and jalapeno kick.
