Not only is this Sloppy Joe Mix recipe less expensive than purchasing a can off the supermarket shelf but you are leaving out all the additives, preservatives, and you have control over the sodium. Having a say in what your family puts in their bodies makes you feel good.
I quadrupled the recipe so I did use the majority of the Paprika but I used less than ¼ of all other spices. This cost around $1.50 per serving including all dry ingredients and wet ingredients (see below).
I made mine right in the container I was going to store it in. The above measurements make one recipe, I usually quadruple it so I have enough for a month or so on hand.
To use, add:
Stir all ingredients in a bowl. Add directly to pan with browned ground beef. Let simmer until thickened.
