Sloppy Josés (Mexican Sloppy Joes) - MW

Hope Wasylenki


Came up with this on the fly - had buns and ground beef - wanted something different.

I guess you could use wheat tortillas to make tacos or such - just you may want to make sure it isn't very sloppy-ish for those.

This is just a base - it can be adapted in several ways.

8 sandwiches


5 Min


20 Min


Stove Top


1 lb
ground beef (85/15 ratio) or ground chicken/turkey
1 pkg
taco seasoning mix
1 Tbsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
ground cayenne pepper
1 can(s)
diced tomatoes with green chiles (14.5 oz)
1 pkg
uncle ben's ready whole grain medley - santa fe
1 can(s)
red enchilada sauce (small can)
1 or 1 1/2 c
shredded mexican blend cheese
whole wheat burger buns

Directions Step-By-Step

Crumble ground beef into a 10-12" skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high until no longer pink, breaking up meat as you stir.
Sprinkle in taco seasoning, add the cumin, cayenne and tomatoes and stir everything together.
Add in the Uncle Ben's and the enchilada sauce. Heat until bubbly.
Spoon about 1/3 - 1/2 cup onto bottom bun and sprinkle with cheese. Cover with bun tops. Serve along with tortilla chips and black beans.
I added some dried diced onions to the mix, but you could use 1/2 of a small onion, diced. I added the Uncle Ben's so I wouldn't use as much beef and it adds a whole grain healthiness to the mix. Very tasty.
