Crispy Taco Sloppy Joes

Crispy Taco Sloppy Joes Don’t you sometimes wonder what’s for dinner? Only if there’s always knew the answer to that question! Although we cook a lot, when it comes to dinner, I often find myself puzzled.

You know my obsession with Mexican.. I love the flavors of Mexican food so come up with a new Mexican dish. I love this tacos sloppy Joes sandwich because it has all the gooey meat and the amazing taco flavor.

These sandwiches are super easy to make and store very well. I cooked the ground beef the same way I do for tacos. I then topped it with Mexican cheese and cooked it on a griddle for 2 minutes on each side. The end results..  super crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside Taco sloppy Joes.

    I love a toasted sandwich. This one looks amazing! Sometimes, I have it all planned out what I will make for dinner and others I can’t think of anything. This would be perfect for when I need something quick. Pinning!

    Holy yum! What a great spin on a sloppy joe. I bet these would be great dipped in that guac you made last week.


    I even menu plan and sometimes I don’t know what’s for dinner! These sloppy joes sound like the perfect quick and easy weeknight meal!

    Love that this combines 2 American classics – Mexican food and sloppy Joes! I know what you mean about not knowing what to cook for dinner! What is that? I mean, as food bloggers we should have all sorts of ideas up our sleeves but so many evenings I get home from work and … blank!
    Thanks for this great idea. Pinning!
