Slow Cooker Gumbo Joes

The sloppier the sandwich, the better it is. I’ve made chorizo Sloppy Joes, Sloppy Cubans, and kicked-up regular ole Sloppy Joes. All were sloppy. All were fantastic. This slow cooker version of a Sloppy Joe with gumbo-inspired flavors is no exception. Fantastic bayou flavors with traditional Sloppy Joe ingredients such as ketchup, mustard, and onion. Thick and messy. It’s gonna drip. It’s gonna make a mess. It’s gonna be great.

This recipe is also a great way to use up leftover gumbo. I don’t usually have leftover gumbo, it seems to disappear very quickly around here. That’s why I had to use a few cans of gumbo instead.
