1. Take and put your hamburger into a pot and begin to heat.
2. When hamburger is sufficiently heated, add your tomato soup and salsa.
3. Stir until desired heat.
4. Put sloppy joe mixture on buns and eat.

This is a recipe that I got off of a soup can label. We have used it often at home and on hiking trips.

The pro's of this recipe are that it's very filling and makes eight sandwiches. The prep time is very minimal and the clean up time is, also, because you're only using one pot. Besides all that, it just tastes so good.

The downside to this is that the tomato soup is in a can, which adds weight and you have to pack so that you don't completely smash the buns. Also, if you dn't want to carry the whole jar of salsa just for a quarther cup means putting it in a zip loc or something, which may in turn leak. Overall, it's a great and filling dinner.
