I love a good sloppy joe and these Tex Mex sloppy joes are a fun change in flavors.

This is made with simple, inexpensive ingredients and best of all, it takes less than 30 minutes to whip up the filling.

The buns are my Paleo Hamburger buns and they are the bomb.  They take no time to whip up and, no need to toot my own horn but the great Boy George even made them!
