Chipotle Sloppy Joes

Who doesn't love a good sloppy joe?  How about one that is considered "healthy"? This one can be made even healthier than the original recipe if you use ground turkey. 

It's a spicy recipe, so don't go overboard with the adobo sauce and chipotle, unless you like it super hot!  I put kid approved because Jimi liked it, but it might be too spicy for some kids.

Serve this with coleslaw and a pickle.  Throw some chips in if you're not watching your figure.

I got this from


Chipotle Sloppy Joes
Serves 5

2 1/2  cups sliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
1  (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1  pound  ground sirloin
1/2  cup chopped green bell pepper
2  tablespoons  tomato paste
1  teaspoon  kosher salt
1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
1  (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
5  (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns, toasted

1. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; cover and cook 8 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside.

2. Remove 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can; set aside. Remove 1 chipotle chile from can; chop and set aside. Reserve remaining chiles and adobo sauce for another use.
3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add beef to pan; cook 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add bell pepper to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in chopped chipotle chile, adobo sauce, tomato paste, and next 3 ingredients (through tomato sauce); cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/2 cup beef mixture over bottom half of each bun, and top evenly with onions and top half of bun.
