Green Chili Sloppy Joes

~1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced orange peppers
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbl red wine vinegar
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
1 8 oz can tomato sauce (plain)
8 oz diced green chilies (2 of those little cans)
salt and pepper to taste

Brown the onions then add the garlic and saute till fragrant, about 30 seconds. You can saute the peppers here too, if you like them very soft. Add the beef and brown it well. Add the chilies, tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar and spices. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes or until as thick as you like. Add the peppers at the end to keep a fresher flavor and crispier texture.

Just a quickie today kids. Hands up, who likes sloppy joes? Yeah, I thought so, they're a good time. I originally made this with ground turkey, to lighten it up a bit, but it's even better with beef. The green chilies add a mellow spiciness to it and change it up just enough so it's not the same old sloppy joe. I also like to add the orange peppers at the very end so they stay a little crispy and give a brighter, more fresh taste. No step by steps I'm afraid, but the process is as simple as you can ask for. So if you're looking to change up your joes, try adding some green chilies! It's some wicked good stuff.

Love Sloppy Joes, a very definite fond memory from growing up - yum!

Jenn said...

Mmmm...I love me some sloppy joes. I used to get this all the time when I'd see it in the lunch truck in high school. I like the addition of the green chili in this. Adds a another level of flavor.

Sloppy Joes are one of the few dishes I can distinctly remember my mother making for us. I loved them because we ate them choose-your-own-topping style with tons of cheddar cheese and black olives. Looks delicious!

Hungry Dog said...

Strangely, I've never had a sloppy joe. What's wrong with me? I'd eat this little number, though. I'd make it with turkey. Nice work.

After the Sloppy Joes I had in college, I can't eat them. Or couldn't. These look fantastic. My daughter would love me forever if I made them. Guess I will.

Never made sloppy joes before. What a shame! Maybe we can try a winter chili and revamp it. Love the vinegar and dry mustard in here. Very tangy.

Danielle said...

I haven't made or had sloppy joes in ages! Lookin pretty darned good right about now.

Cathy said...

I never use the same sloppy joe recipe twice. Someday I'll

Sounds like a wonderful addition to sloppy joes to me!
