Quick and easy with a great spicy and sweet flavor, perfect for a busy weekday. One of my family's favorites.
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 teaspoons mccormick hot shot seasoning (or 1 tsp each cayenne or red pepper and black pepper)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons chili powder (I prefer the hot mexican style for the extra kick)
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 30 ounces condensed tomato soup
- Brown the meat, breaking it up, until all fat has disappeard.
- Lower heat to medium and add the Hot Shot, salt, chili powder and flour.
- Mix well to distribute the flour throughout the meat.
- Stir in the tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar.
- Continue to simmer and stir until thickened.
- The longer you let it simmer, the better the flavors will bond.
- It will thicken a bit more during cooling.
- This feeds 5 good eaters.
Excellent, I have never been a fan of sloppy joe's but this one will make me one.
We really liked this spicy version of Sloppy Joes. It has more of a spicy Mexican flair than the traditional BBQ flavor. I reduced the recipe to only prepare half. I was unsure what the hotshot seasoning was so decided it was cayenne (red) and regular black pepper. I reduced the cayenne by half again and it was plenty spicy :O I served this with your potato salad recipe and a marinated cucumber salad. I would make the sloppy joes again. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
An amazing quick and easy recipe - just what we needed for Sunday night dinner. I wasn't sure what 'Hot Shots' seasoning was so used a bit of cajun mix and chipotle chilli powder for an amazing smokey flavour. A keeper for us! Thanks!
