Sloppy Janes

Sloppy Jane, the sister to Sloppy Joe, is a little more refined and effortless. She has pizazz and stands out in a crowd. Unlike her brother she really shows her Southwestern roots but still maintains that traditional flavor you grew up with as a kid. She is mock meat free and relies on cremini mushrooms and black beans to give a hearty and even sloppier bite than Joe has ever been able to bring to the table. Let's face it, Jane was the favorite child.

Cremini mushrooms, black beans, red onions and green chiles slow simmered in a crock pot for 5 hours with hints of sweet and sour flavors. Serve on toasted rolls with sweet potato fries.
