Sloppy Joes

Our Family Loves Sloppy Joes!
The kids  would never eat it out of the can so I had to find a recipe that would fit out family. I got this one from Pioneer Women but changed it up a notch to fit our family. Go a head and double it for gatherings! Great to make ahead and great for the crockpot.

½ whole Large Onion, Diced

1 teaspoon  Mustard

½ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes (more To Taste)

2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste (optional)

Preparation Instructions
