Recipe: Sloppy Joes

I remember having Manwich when I was younger...and I also remember it being much better than it was a while back when I tried it again.

We had a lot of ground meat (my parents own a farm) that we needed to use and I was tired of spaghetti and hamburgers.

I decided to search for an acceptable 'sloppy joe' recipe that both DH and I would like.

I found this one at My Recipes and made only a few adjustments and it turned out GREAT. It was actually much better than I thought it would be. This recipe has a ton of flavor!


-1 pound lean ground beef or lean ground turkey (notice this is less than the recipe in the link)
-1 small (1 inch) onion, finely chopped
-1 small green bell pepper, finely chopped
-2 to 4 tsp garlic, minced
-1 small can no salt added tomato paste
-2 tsp chili powder
-1 tsp ground cumin
-1 tsp salt
-1 chicken bouillon cube with 1 cup boiling water, until dissolved
-1 can no salt added corn
-Hamburger buns

-Spray a large sauce pan with Pam, add onion and pepper and sauté until onion becomes clear (medium heat, ~2 to 3 minutes)
-Add ground meat and sauté until browned, keep stirring
-Add tomato paste, stir
-Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and water/bouillon mix
-Simmer until mixture becomes thick (~10 minutes on low heat)
-Add corn, stir
-Spoon desired amount onto hamburger bun and serve!
