Sloppy Joe

Some days it's hard to find time to get in the kitchen and prepare a meal from scratch, that's why I love Sloppy Joe's!  This recipe should be credited to my mom who first prepared one for me years ago with TVP.  This is one of my go-to semi-homemade recipes that is so incredibly easy and as long as there are hamburger buns in the house, I usually have all the ingredients lying around.  It's a good to the bone All American food and it's incredibly filling and satisfying.  I just ate two!  Since I'm usually only making food for me when I throw them together, this recipe is to serve one.  However, since the whole idea behind the Sloppy Joe is to just throw it together, making a larger batch is super simple and the measurements don't need to be exact.  It's very difficult, if not impossible, to mess up this recipe!  For a complete meal serve along a salad or french fries!!  Also, using mini buns to make this dish is great for a party!

Yields 1
1/3 cup store bought vegetarian chorizo
1 tbsp + 1 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp Killer Tomato Sauce or 1 tbsp ketchup
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 hamburger bun

In a frying pan, add the chorizo and bring to medium-high heat (no need to add oil since the corizo will have oil in it).  Lower to medium-low heat and add remaining ingredients.  Mix well and allow to sit for 5 mins for the flavors to develop.  In the meantime, heat your bun in the oven or toaster oven.  Spread either vbutter, ketchup, or Killer Tomato Sauce on the bun.  Fill bun with Sloppy Joe mixture and dig in!!  Make sure to have a napkin handy!
