Although a little messy, sloppy joes are a fabulous game day food! As amazing as sloppy joes are, they get even better when you combine them with the flavours of jalapeno poppers! This recipe starts out with basic sloppy joes with the addition of jalapenos, cream cheese and cheddar cheese! I often like to make bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers and so I add bacon to the sloppy joes. Jalapeno poppers are often coated with crispy breadcrumbs and you can fill the sandwiches with crumbled tortilla chips! Any way you serve these jalapeno popper sloppy joes they are the perfect game day food, or busy weeknight meal!
