You may say to yourself after reading the ingredient list “Hey!” “What in the world is ground cinnamon and cocoa powder doing in a savory recipe like this?” “And what about the butter and lime juice?” “She has really gone off the deep end with this recipe!” “Has Renee lost her mind?!!”
And my answer would be…Well. Maybe. But not about this recipe.
There was a time when I used to buy my Sloppy Joe mix out of a can from the grocery store. Not that that’s a bad thing, but I’ll tell you what…once you make your own (which doesn’t take much more time than opening a can), you’ll never go back!
