The Original Recipe:
I made a small home made gift this year for some friends. I know I would love it if I had Sloppy Joe seasoning mix all ready made up so that I could just throw it together with some ground beef and Ketchup. I mix mine up every time we have sloppy joes, but these will be so handy for them! I am excited for them to try these!

Sloppy Joe Seasoning Mix (make 3 half-pint jars)
2 cups Chili Powder
1/4 cup paprika
3 tbls. dry ground mustard
1 tbls. cumin
1 tbls. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
5 tsp. beef bullion
2 tsp. McKormick montreal seasoning (optional)
2 tsp. pepper
(You can add salt, but I leave it out in order for them to add their own)
Mix seasonings together. Store in airtight container.
*(You can test the taste by mixing some seasoning with some ketchup and heat through in the microwave. If it taste like sloppy joes then you are go to go! If you think it needs something else, then by all means, add that too! I had my husband taste this, and he picked up right away that it was sloppy joes. I was impressed!)
1 lb. ground beef
2 tbls. sloppy joe seasoning mix
3/4 cup ketchup
Brown ground beef in pan, add seasoning and ketchup. Stir to heat through. Serve on buns.
