Black Bean Sloppy Joes


I’m not going to beat around the bush here…

It’s Saturday night and I’ve got my hottie husband in the other room doing his homework patiently waiting  for me to be done with whatever it is I’m doing so I can distract and persuade him to quit working  he can shower me with affection and gifts, and tell me how amazing I am.

I’ve got big plans, people.

Needless to say, I’ve got to make this short.  It’s a good thing that these sloppy joes take about negative 3 minutes to make. While I’m all about a good beefy (or turkey-ey) sloppy joe, these black bean ones really cure a craving if you want something a little lighter or sans the meat. I’ve received a couple of requests to feature more meatless meals and this is a great example of a protein packed, easy, flavorful meal that doesn’t include meat.

I hope you give them a try. Until then, I’m going to go annoy spend quality time with my hubby! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Can the Dijon mustard be substituted with regular? I am wanting to try these ASAP but don’t have Dijon on hand.
