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.

Notes:

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.

Tips:

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.
