Sloppy Joes*Russell Style

In my family we never really had sloppy joes....and if we did, we made them using the little packet thingy's.  When I married into the Russell family, I was introduced to Sheila's DIVINE homemade sloppy joes.  She has never really measured out all of the ingredients, so I took on the challenge and re-created her masterpiece!!!! Hope you love it!!!!

Sloppy Joes


1 lb lean ground beef {I like to use "EXTRA LEAN"}
1 green pepper chopped
1 white onion chopped
1 can Chicken Gumbo
1 1/2 tsp Yellow Mustard
3/4 cup Ketchup
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hamburger buns {western family are my FAV!!!}

Chop green pepper and white onion.  Place them in the frying pan and get them cooking on high.  After about one-two minutes add ground beef and season with salt and pepper.  Once the meat is cooked all the way through, drain any fat.  Add chicken gumbo and mix all the way in on medium heat.  Add mustard and ketchup.  Mix thoroughly. Continue to cook until slightly thickened. This takes about 3-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.  SERVE on a perfect bun and ENJOY!!!!!
