Smoky Southwest Sloppy Joes with Bacon
If you like food with a kick then you will love these Sloppy Joe's. Super simple to prepare and packed with flavor. I made mine ahead of time and then let the meat simmer in the crock pot so they were all ready to go when dinner time arrived. They were a hit!
Smoky Southwest Sloppy Joe's with Bacon
Cal 358, Fat 7.5g, Carbs 33.5g, Fiber 2g, Protein 33g
1 lb. lean ground sirloin (I used 96/4)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 8oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Stubbs)
1 can chopped green chilies
2 chipotle peppers, chopped with sauce
2 tbsp. southwest seasoning blend (I used Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup crumbled bacon bits
4 hamburger buns or rolls (I used Brownberry Wheat)
crumbled queso fresco cheese and sliced jalapeno for toppings (optional)
In a large skillet, on medium-low heat cook the meat and onions until browned, about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except buns, jalapeno, and cheese) and stir well. Turn heat to low and let simmer for 30 minutes. Serve on warm buns and top with crumbled queso, and sliced jalapeno if desired. Enjoy!
*Note-If using a crock pot once meat is browned transfer to the crock pot and add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
