Colorado Sloppy Joes

Looking to clean out the 'fridge one day, I put together the most likely candidates for a meal and came up with this-tasty, easy, and inexpensive!

pinch tips: How to Freeze Fish, Meat & Poultry


15 Min


20 Min


1 lb
ground beef
1 c
mild salsa (or whatever strength you like)
1/2 c
jarred spaghetti sauce ( i used tomato basil)

Directions Step-By-Step

In a medium saucepan, begin browning ground beef.
When beef begins to cook down, drain some of the grease off before the meat is cooked through.
Add salsa, spaghetti sauce,and cook through until the meat is no longer pink and the flavors of the sauce are mixed in. (I continually stirred the meat and smashed it up into fine particles to incorporate the sauce.)
Serve on buttered toasted buns with a healthy shredding of Marbled cheese on top of the meat, before placing top bun. Serve with bread and Butter pickle chips, and re-fried, or ranch style beans. Great with coleslaw, too (even on the Joe).
