This is a SouthWest twist to the traditional Sloppy Joe recipe we all love. I found this in Southern Living.
- 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes (or Rotell tomatoes with chilies if you like it hot)
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- hamburger bun
- grated monterey jack cheese
- Brown meat in a large skillet over medium heat;drain.
- Stir in tomatoes and next 7 ingredients; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat; simmer 5-10 minutes.
- Spoon mixture onto buns and top with cheese and lettuce.
I tried it and it is GREAT! It's like having sloppy joe's with a kick. I'll never go back to plain old SJ's again. They will just taste to blah! Thanx for sharing!!
I haven't had Sloppy Joe's in years, and these really hit the spot - a great variation on the classic recipe. I felt that these would have worked better with crushed tomatoes though - I simmered them for a bit longer (at least 15 minutes) so that the tomatoes would cook in. Thanks Geema!
My DD calls these "tacos on a bun" - they were very tasty & a quick and easy meal. I used ground turkey with great success. Next time I will use canned crushed tomatoes or smaller diced? We didn't like the tomato chunks in the meat so much. Thanks for the post. ZWT 3
