Homemade Sloppy Joes




1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs ketchup
1 can Chicken Gumbo Soup
1/4 c. water
1 small onion chopped
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 Tbs. mustard



Brown beef and onion. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 10 minutes. Serve on Hamburger buns. Sometimes I will add fresh chopped green or red peppers too, it's a great way to get in some extra veggies.

*GROUND BEEF TIP
 One of the greatest things our Mom ever taught us was to buy bulk ground beef, cook it all (i usually add some minced onion)  and divide it into zip lock bags and put them in the freezer. Then when dinner time rolls around all you have to do is pull out a bag, defrost it for a few minutes and the beef is ready to go. It is so nice when you are cooking in a hurry to not have to worry about cooking the meat. Thanks Mom for making our lives easier!

I made these tonight at Ashlyn's request:-) I had frozen pre-cooked ground beef, so they only took about 10 minutes to make. Delish!
