Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 20 Minutes


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 1/4 cups ketchup
1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeños (optional)
1 tablespoon liquid from pickled jalapeños (optional)
8 hamburger buns, toasted


Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return cooked beef to skillet.

Stir in tomatoes, next 3 ingredients, and, if desired, jalapeños and liquid. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve mixture on toasted buns.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used KC Masterpiece Original Barbecue Sauce.
