Some Tips On How To Make The Best Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes Recipe:

  • Can I substitute chicken with turkey? Yes, go for it, it will taste fantastic!
  • Can I skip the cornstarch? I would not recommend that, the Sloppy Joes will be very runny if you do so.
  • Can I use flour instead of cornstarch? It will alter the taste of the Sloppy Joes, I recommend sticking to cornstarch.
  • Can I skip the onion? Yes, while it adds flavor and texture and its best used in this recipe, if you really don’t like onions, you can skip it.
  • Why do you add so much garlic? I LOVE garlic, and the more the merrier for me, it adds such a nice flavor. You can add less, or more.
  • How can I make these spicier? Add 2-3 tablespoons of hot sauce or more cayenne pepper. Taste and adjust.
  • I don’t have cheddar cheese, can I use other type of cheese? You can use mozzarella or a Mexican blend type of cheese.
  • Can I add more veggies to these? Yes! I love adding 1 diced bell pepper or mushrooms.
