Serving Suggestions:

Serve with a side of salsa, guacamole, or sour cream for dipping.

Garnish with fresh cilantro, lime wedges, or jalapeños for an extra burst of flavor.


To make the burritos easier to grill, ensure the filling is not too wet; this helps prevent the tortillas from becoming soggy.

You can prepare the sloppy joe filling ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, making assembly and grilling quick and convenient.

For a healthier version, consider using ground turkey or chicken instead of beef, and whole wheat tortillas.


Be sure to wrap the burritos tightly to prevent the filling from spilling out during grilling.

Use a panini press or a heavy skillet to achieve even grilling and a nice, crispy texture on the tortillas.

These Loppy Joe Grilled Burritos combine the comforting flavors of sloppy joes with the convenience and deliciousness of burritos, making them a unique and crowd-pleasing dish.
