Sloppy Joes are an American classic. Our version uses ground turkey mixed with red and refried beans for added bulk. This saucy sandwich gets extra zip from chile sauce and a jalapeno pepper.
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 ounces extra lean ground turkey breast
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 plum tomatoes, diced
1 10.5-oz can small red beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup fat-free refried beans
Salt and pepper
8 whole-wheat hamburger buns
How to Make It
In a bowl, mix chili sauce, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 cup water. In a nonstick skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add turkey, onion and jalapeño; cook, stirring and breaking up meat, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute.
Sprinkle flour on top and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add ketchup mixture and tomatoes, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring. Add red and refried beans; cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper.
Split and toast hamburger buns. Divide mixture among buns and serve immediately.
I really liked this recipe. I didn't have any chili sauce, so I used 1/2 c. tomato sauce, 11-/2 t. vinegar, dash of cloves, 1 T brown sugar, 1/8 t. garlic powder & 1/2 t. chili powder. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.
