Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Whenever someone comes to visit, Grandma Rene makes a big batch of Sloppy Joes. For some reason, I thought that since they were so delicious, they must be very complicated to make. Wow I was so wrong. These are easy AND delicious. Thanks for the recipe, Grandma!

What you need:
1 pound hamburger
1/2 - 1 onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced (optional)
1 can tomato soup
salt/pepper to taste
splash of vinegar
about 1-2 T brown sugar
soft hamburger buns
cheese slices and pickles (optional)

What to do:
Brown hamburger with onion and green pepper. Drain off fat. Mix in tomato soup, salt/pepper, vinegar and brown sugar. Simmer over low/med heat for 30 minutes or ready to eat. Serve on soft hamburger buns with cheese and pickles. Makes 4-6 sandwiches, depending on how much you fill each. Our family tradition includes sides of potato salad or macaroni salad, and chips and salsa.
