We love this recipe. We substituted low-fat ground turkey breast and still find that they have excellent flavor. We've actually taken to calling them "sloppy janes" because they are lighter! We served them over a baked potato (almost like chili) instead of on a bun for variety - very good!

This is a fantastic recipe!!! So flavorful that I made it twice in one week. PLUS love, love love the kale chips. I added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes with salt and pepper – delish!

Sarah, My family rates the new recipes I try and my husband said to put the Sloppy Joes on the list. The kale chips weren't as successful because I tried to hold them in the oven and they got over done quickly. I really love watching your videos and have been trying your dinners. I like the low fat low carbohydrate recipes. You are amazing!! Thank You!! Dottie
