I never use those seasoning mix packs because you can always do better
adding what you like without the massive amount of salt.
Just add the seasoning/taste you like. For sloppy joes I would add more
aromatics to the above including celery and garlic and some chili powder
and a couple grinds of black pepper. If you want to thicken it just add
a cornstarch slurry at the end and let it come back to a boil.
