Yummy Sloppy Joes

I made a new recipe from Cooking Light last week that turned out to be absolutely delicious! Originally I made it with the kids in mind but it turned out to be a favorite for Chris and I as well. So if you are looking for just some good all american kind of food, add this to your must try!

Sloppy Joes

3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
3/4 pound ground round
2 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
12 (1 1/2-ounce) rolls, split

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add first 3 ingredients; cook until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in tomato sauce and next 8 ingredients (tomato sauce through black pepper); reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/4 cup beef mixture over bottom half of each bun. Cover with top halves.
12 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

How weird... I was going to make Sloppy Joe's for dinner tomorrow night, but have never made them before, and this recipe looks a lot yummier than the one I was originally going to use. Thanks for the recipe... can't wait to try it!
