The holidays are a busy time, and I don’t know about you, but I really like to simplify my cooking now especially!  Sloppy Joe is a quick, easy meal to make. So, I took my regular “American” recipe and added a Mexican flair to it.  It actually turned out pretty well!

 

If you would like to give it a try, here is the recipe:

  • 1/2 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1 can (15oz) black beans (drained)
  • 3 jalapeños (cored, seeded, and chopped, rinse if you don’t want it spicy)  OR  1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 T. chili powder
  • 1 c. catsup/ketchup (however you like to spell it!)
  • 1/2 c. water

Brown the ground beef or turkey and drain.  Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1/2 hour.  That’s it!

Serve on hamburger buns with a salad or another side dish. Even add some crumbled “queso fresco” or sliced avocado to top your sandwiches, or melt some cheddar slices over the top!

¡Delicioso!
