Richard's Sloppy Joes

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
Our adult taste-testers described this dish as mildly hot. If your family prefers less kick, adjust the amount of pickled jalapeños (and liquid from the jar) to suit their tastes.

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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