Sloppy Joes are simple to make without using canned mixes. WIth some ground turkey hiding in the freezer I switched up my usual recipe for sloppy joes. Leftovers freeze well. Just thaw and reheat for a quick meal.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium high heat. Cook the turkey until no longer pink then drain.
  2. Add the other tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Toss in the peppers, onions and a teaspoon of salt; cook until the onions are translucent. Place the tomato paste, chili powder, and paprika to the vegetables and cook 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 15-30 seconds.
  3. Return the turkey to the skillet and stir inches Pour in the tomato sauce and add in the brown sugar, Tabasco, and ketchup. Salt and pepper to taste and simmer 5-10 minutes.

Delicious sloppy joes. I loved the use of ground turkey. Once the turkey was combined with all of the sauce ingredients, it tasted just like ground beef. The only change I made was to swap out the bell peppers with celery due to family preference. Great recipe! Made for Spring Pick A Chef in the Contests/Events forum.
