    We moved to Spokane, WA from Northern Minnesota three years ago and really miss some of the ethnic foods from there. One in particular, they were called Homemade South Americans......in other words a spicy slppy joe. I guess that's the best way to describe them. Anyone ever heard of these and if so where to get a recipe? I've googled, ask.com and others but nothing!!

    Perhaps one of these recipes (click link) will be close enough to what you remember- if not, perhaps you could tweak one of them. icon_smile.gif

    I was looking for similar recipes and saw your post for south americans. I grew up in northern minnesota on "the range" and my mom and one of her best friends used to make them every year in the fall and then freeze them for a mid winter warm up. My mom just passed away at the end of august and Im still trying to find all of the stuff we packed away so quickly, boxes and boxes and boxes. Everyone thinks that i have the moms recipe box in my stuff and being that its winter, I probably wont be going through all of the boxes until spring. Long story shorter, I know that I have the very recipe you desire somewhere. I will do some further searching and keep you updated when I find it, but be rest assured that i do have the recipe and will pass it along as soon as I find it. nice to know someone else knows about them too. have a great day!

    Found it!!!!
    South Americans
    by Liz Shain

    Yields 32 pints to be frozen
    Use the freshest seasonal peppers and heat of peppers to your taste but this should make you sweat a bit.

    6lbs hamburger
    2 1/2 lbs spicy or hot pepperoni (ground)
    2 C. oil (optional depending on fat content of above meat)
    2 tbsp salt
    Combine above ingredients and brown

    2 1/2 lbs onions coarsely ground
    3 lg cans tomato sauce
    1 ice cream pail of diced GREEN tomatoes
    1 lg can of tomatoes or 6 lg fresh red tomatoes (ground)
    4 green bell peppers (ground)
    2 sweet red peppers (ground)
    2 stalks diced celery
    1 bunch of coarsely chopped endive, parsley or even cilantro
    3 red hot chili peppers ( Serrano, jalapeño, etc.depending on how how you like it)

    Combine with browned meats and cook down until the consistency of thicker sloppy joes. Cool and put in freezer bags. Serve on open faced French bread or regular bread. Will be hotter after freezing. Tastes best in the middle of a blizzard.

    Oh wow thank you very much for this!!!! My mother who is also from northern Minnesota has been looking for her copy of this recipe for years! It comes from a small Italian Restaurant named ________ Spaghetti in Gilbert I do believe. From what she has told me, the owner was a man and his son was her friend. I have been trying (with little to no luck) to piece together clues that lead to the original recipe she once owned, so that I can surprise her with South Americans on her birthday. I have now been looking for two years and this is the closest to the original that I have ever found, only the meat was a bit different. I would love to make this as personal as possible, please tell me more about your mother and her friend so I can finish this puzzle and give my mom a wonderful surprise! Again thank you so much! handsbe@yahoo.com -Bethany

    Sorry, that I never responded to your last post. I think that your return response got lost in the junk mail in my inbox. I grew up in biwabik and my mother and one of her best friends would make this every fall and can it for the winter. Hope it worked out well for your birthday surprise.

    Hi, I have this recipe and have for years. It is alot like the other one posted on here from Biwabik. Mine came from the Italian community any more info on that and the mob might come after me icon_smile.gif anyways this is the ingredients.
    3 lbs hamburger
    1 lbs pepperoni
    4 large onions
    2 bunches celery
    3 lbs red tomatoe
    3 lbs GREEN tomatoe
    1 lb. red pepper
    1 lb. green pepper
    1 can tomatoe paste
    1 cup olive oil
    lots of garlic
    a bit of oregano

    I put it bit by bit in the blender and cook for an hour or so. then I can it according to the directions for meat. 10 lbs pressure for about 90 minutes if I remember right.
    I hope this helps you. I am off to search for a traditional finnish bread my grandmother used to make..nobody can remember the name just what it looked like..Italian grandfather and finnish grandmother...lots of good recipes!

    I am from Aurora on the Iron Range in MN and came across this recipe for South Americans from a friend of my mother's : Brown: 2# veal, 2# lean pork, 1# chopped pepperoni with 1 pt oil. Grind together: 1 qt mushrooms, 2# red peppers, 2# green peppers, 2 stalks celery, 12 hot peppers & 2# onions. Mix all together with 2 large cans of tomatoes & 4 # spinach (canned or squeezed frozen ). Cook slowly. Freeze in freezer bags - this keeps for a long time.
