Open Face Mexican Sloppy Joes over Cornbread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by SarasotaCook

Another comfort food. Open face sloppy Joes on corn bread (with a few additions). It has a bit of a Mexican flare but still very mild. I also love to serve this with Mexican coleslaw, but the sloppy Joe's are great on their own. I even make this with ground turkey which has less fat, but that it is up to you. I like to serve over a spicy cornbread and top with some monterey jack cheese. It makes a great Saturday or Sunday dinner.

This is a very nice change from regular sloppy joes. We enjoyed them open faced on the cornbread; that is a nice variation also. I will be making these again!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Vegetables -- In a large saute pan, add the oil and bring to medium heat. Saute the celery, garlic, onion and green pepper until lightly sauteed.
  2. The turkey -- once the vegetables are soft, add the turkey inches Saute until golden brown and vegetables are soft.
  3. Add the tomatoes, sauce, and paste, seasoning, Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste. And just let simmer 30-40 minutes.
  4. Cornbread -- Mix the cornbread mix, the milk and eggs according to the box directions. Add the green chilies (lightly drained, I keep a little juice), seasoning and cheese. Bake according to directions. I like to use a 13x9" pan.
  5. Cut the cornbread into squares and then serve Sloppy Joe sauce over the top. Garnish with grated cheese and scallions.
  6. I love to serve with this with coleslaw or black beans or a simple green salad.
