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.

How to Make Sloppy Josés (Mexican Sloppy Joes) - MW


  • 1Crumble ground beef into a 10-12" skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high until no longer pink, breaking up meat as you stir.
  • 2Sprinkle in taco seasoning, add the cumin, cayenne and tomatoes and stir everything together.
  • 3Add in the Uncle Ben's and the enchilada sauce. Heat until bubbly.
  • 4Spoon 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.
  • 5I 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.
