Sloppy Joe Quesadillas Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Earlier this week I shared my Pressure Cooker Sloppy Joes recipe. When I was preparing it, I made a nice big batch of it so that I could use it for a few different recipes. In addition to the Sloppy Joes, I also shared a recipe for Sloppy Joe Dip, which I could truthfully just eat with a spoon like chili. I had enough Sloppy Joe mixture to make one more meal – Sloppy Joe Quesadillas. While the meal is a tad messy, it’s also simple and tasty so you won’t mind needing an extra napkin. My youngest especially enjoyed this meal and quickly asked for seconds. The sloppy joe mixture itself is gluten-free, so if you want to make this meal gluten-free all you need to do is use a gluten-free tortilla. The slightly sweet and tangy flavor paired really well with the white corn quesadillas that I used. I used “taco truck” sized tortillas, whch aren’t much larger than a piece of bread. You could use a larger tortilla, all you’ll need to do is increase the amount of sloppy joe mixture that you use. Here’s how I make it.

    These look good! I’m vegetarian but they could be done with black beans or Boca ground. Very creative and family friendly recipe!
