Sloppy Joe's

We had Nicks family over for lunch the other day, so I had to make something simple with few vegetables, since his father and his brother's don't like them. I decided on making sloppy joe's from scratch, they turned out great and we topped them with some special pickled jalapenos for the perfect kick.

Serving size: 8


1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 4oz cans of diced green chilies
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
2 14oz cans diced tomatoes
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 2.5oz can tomato paste
2 tbsp of spicy brown mustard
2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp each of onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper

8 buns, toasted

1. Warm the oil in a large saute pan. Add the onions, chilies, and garlic. Saute for 5-10 minutes until onions are tender.
2. Add the ground beef and ground turkey to the saute pan to cook. Make sure to separate the meat with a spatula as it cooks. Cook thoroughly, about 10 minutes.
3. Pour onion meat mixture into a large saucepan. Add remaining ingredients (BBQ sauce, diced tomatoes, ketchup, vinegar, tomato paste, spicy brown mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper) to saucepan and combine well.
4. Bring entire mixture to a boil and then simmer for another 20 minutes.
5. Place a spoonful of sloppy joe mix between a toasted bun and enjoy!
