Mexican Sloppy Joes

I bookmarked this recipe a long time ago and just completely forgot about it. Then I found it again as I was cleaning up my computer favorites. 

I've been finding that I need to update my browser as I can't view or open up some things lately. So I made the switch to Google Chrome and it's really made a difference. I should have done it years ago, but I get stuck and stay with what I know. Pretty soon I'll need a new laptop and I suppose that will really throw me off!

Anyway, this recipe was awesome! I love cilantro and when I buy a bunch, I like to put it on everything. When I read about putting it on a Sloppy Joe, I knew it was for me. We couldn't get enough of this sandwich....it was slightly sweet, slightly spicy....a great combo of flavors!
