I thought these were great!! From the other comments, I adjusted the cole slaw dressing a little bit to suit our tastes. I diced the red pepper and I used a large tablespoon of sour cream, 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, a good shot of Frank's red hot sauce and then salt and pepper. Come out fantastic and went really well with the meat mixture. I didn't add the cilantro to the mixture as DH doesn't really care for it and just sprinkled some on my sandwich instead. We used some soft onion rolls and served them with Dominican Moro De Habichuelas Negras.
LOVED these Joe's! The only major change I made was to use sour cream in place of the yogurt, but that was only because I was in the middle of the recipe before I realized I didn't have any on hand. I love chipotle - and spicy is always welcome in our house - but I loved the fact that I could make it without spice for the kids, then just drizzle extra adobo sauce from the can on top of mine. I did not find the chipotle amounts called for to be too spicy (and I don't like things spicy to the point of overpowering the flavor of the dish); in fact, I added twice the amount. I will try ground turkey next time and use yogurt, otherwise will make no changes. The coleslaw was a very nice touch and really completes the sandwich. THANKS for sharing!!
These were pretty good. I'm giving 4 since the coleslaw was bland but the Joes were good. I think we will tinker with the coleslaw part of the recipe to have a bit more taste. Thanks so much!! This is a make again.
Okay we tried this the other day, I made as directed, but was way too spicy for us. I think next time I will cut back on chipotle chiles. But over all had a great smokey flavor. I did make colslaw as directed but was too bland, I will just use regular colslaw dressing next time, it is a good compliment to smokey flavor in this sloppy joe recipe. I will definately make again with tweaking. Thanks for a good recipe.
I wanted to try out my chipotle chilli peppers - a gift from a friend in the USA; this was GREAT! The only change I made was to use kidney beans as I had no black beans, and I also had no frozen corn either. Everything else was made exctly as the recipe suggests. We had it for our supper and even my hubby who is not keen on spicy food said it was very nice. Thanks for posting this - a totally NEW type of recipe for me to try & keep. P.S. The coleslaw was a great addition to this sandwich.
