Spicy Sloppy Joes Recipe

My entire life we have eaten Sloppy Joes aka Maid-Rites inside of buns, like a sandwich or on top of a slice of bread. With this new SPICY Sloppy Joes recipe I created, I thought it would be great on top of roasted potatoes. The whole family loves it this way and I am not sure that I will be going back to bread anytime soon.
