Wahoo Chili Sloppy Joes & More

When I started working at Tastefully Simple, over 12 years ago, I quickly became a fan of Wahoo! Chili® Seasoning, but not for the obvious reason: making chili. Sure, it makes award-winning chili worthy of game day; however, I like to use this versatile seasoning to make Sloppy Joes – and so much more.

Sloppy Joes are so easy to make when you’re crunched for time. This recipe makes a big batch. Enough to feed hungry teenagers plus leftovers! Here are a few ways I use this versatile recipe – as Sloppy Joes and so much more!

Simple comfort food. Serve these Sloppy Joes with potato chips, tator tots or Vidalia Onion Broccoli Slaw.

Take an ordinary baked sweet potato and stuff it with the Sloppy Joe mixture. I loved it topped with slices of avocado, chopped fresh cilantro and a dollop of sour cream. A simple and satisfying lunch!

There are even more ways to mix it up with this versatile recipe. Try stirring the Sloppy Joe mixture into your favorite mac & cheese for a tasty chili mac the kids will love. Or stir it together with prepared white rice and corn, then stuff into bell peppers.
