I use just chili sauce in my sloppy joes. A couple of bottles of chili sauce (Note: make sure it is chili sauce NOT cocktail sauce). It is sweet and cheaper than ketchup and makes the sloppy joes better than Manwich. My aunt taught me this when I was a child.
This is one of the fastest and best-tasting lunch specials you can make. Most children love any kind of SloppyJoe Sandwich, but this one has some added flavor and nutrition.
Heat skillet and add 2 tsp olive oil to it. Allow it to get hot. Crumble up beef and add to skillet, stirring until meat is browning and slightly caramelized. Stir to further break up meat, and add the can of undiluted cream of chicken soup. Cook for 2 minutes. while stirring to heat thoroughly. Spoon over open hamburger buns.
Add a pre-made tossed salad with dressing of choice and you have a nice quick and filling lunch. My children loved our homemade baked beans with these sloppy joes.

Source: My oldest daughter. The three daughters were always playing "Restaurant" when they were learning to cook. This recipe was named "Grub Gravy" on their "menu", probably from watching "Bonanza" and the introduction of Hop Sing's "chuck wagon" on the trail.

This is one of those times when putting 2 heads together is really working. We enjoy eating outside in the summer time as much as possible. This is simple enough to prepare ahead of time (the gravy and pasta) then take it outside and eat around the pool. I always feel that I need to be making something a little healthier than just sandwiches, and I just have to try this. At least, I know the kids will eat it. They like everything that is in the recipe.
Thanks to the original poster and the one who suggested using macaroni with it.
Being single and needing to watch what I make and save money, I make my own sloppy joes (slushburgers).
I love it when my best friend comes over to make sloppy joes. I like the kind that uses tomato paste and a seasoning packet, but I love hers! :)

I usually double the recipe. Brown and drain ground beef. Add pepper, onion, and garlic and saute for approximately 5 minutes. Add other ingredients and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Brown meat. Chop onion and add to meat; cook. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Toast buns. Spoon meat into buns.
A family favorite and a great stand-by when you need a quick meal!
These go over big at our house! Very kid-friendly as well.
