We don't really have/see Sloppy Joes here, they're very much a US thing, so I thought I'd give them a go. Simple to cook and make, and taste much better than they look, even if they are a little messy to eat

Using Chipotle instead of the barbecue sauce is a good improvement, or simply piling some jalapeno slaw into the bun with it. Serve with a bowl of chips and some salad

True American style would use cheese slices rather than cheddar, but I wanted proper cheese flavour in there.
