If you’re thinking to yourself that Sloppy Joes aren’t your thing just keep reading. Don’t click out! Because in fact, they aren’t my thing either. I typically don’t like sloppy joes. I think it has to do with the name, maybe? I don’t know. I would typically never choose to make them or eat them. I guess they are a neutral food to me. I don’t hate them, I don’t love them. Neutral. Some other foods that might fall into that category are snickerdoodles, shredded wheat, applesauce, jello, etc. Anyhoo…back to the sloppy joes. Well these one’s are different. One, they are not served on a bun. Two, they are made with roast instead of hamburger meat. Three, they are served on a tortilla as a quesadilla. Four, they are served with cream cheese instead of regular cheddar cheese.
Yes, cream cheese!
I was having a conversation the other day with someone about sloppy joes. He mentioned that he put cream cheese on his growing up. What?! Cream cheese? That sounded really awesome to me! I had to incorporate it into this recipe. And it was awesome. I love them, my kids love them and my husband loves them. Don’t knock it until you try it. You’ll like it too, I promise!
