- tomato sauce
- tomato paste
- sour cream
- hamburger buns

Tips for making Taco Sloppy Joes:
- I used ground round for this recipe, but you can go even lighter with ground sirloin.
- What do you do if you don’t have all the seasonings? You can use a taco seasoning packet. Omit the seasonings in the meat mixture. Taste to season with salt or creole seasoning, if you’d like.
- Do you have to to use creole seasoning? Nope, you can just use salt and pepper.
- Do you have to butter and toast the buns? Nope, this just adds another layer of flavor.
- Can you use a different cheese? Absolutely! I think PepperJack would be amazing too.
