Sloppy Joes

Although this is traditionally a red meat dish, I prefer to use ground chicken or ground turkey. The swap is hardly noticeable but a lot healthier! Super easy … don’t bother eating it out of a can. Homemade is easy and delicious and much better for you!

Sloppy Joes

1 lb. ground chicken or turkey (or beef)
1/2 c. chopped green pepper or celery
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T. brown sugar
1 t. dry mustard
8 oz. tomato sauce
1/2 c. ketchup
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. vinegar

Directions: In large skillet, brown chicken, green pepper and onion. Drain well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir occasionally until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice or as a sandwich.
