How to Make It

Step 1

Step 2

Meanwhile, prepare Texas toast according to package directions. Serve beef mixture over Texas toast; sprinkle with cheese.

Made it for dinner tonight, my 2 teens loved it. Ran out of ketchup so didn't add the full cup, but it was still tasty. I liked the jalapeno addition. Will definitely make again.

I tweaked this recipe a little bit. I used 1 lb lean ground beef and 1/2 lb ground sweet Italian sausage. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic. I did not use the jalapeños but instead used crumbled bacon with jalapeños sprinkled on top of the shredded cheese. (I found this by the croutons and bacon bits.) I only put the bacon on my husband's dish since I don't like jalapeños. I think I will cut back or omit the BBQ sauce. It was too strong of a flavor and overpowered the other tastes. I served it with pasta salad from the grocery store deli. The recipe was easy and fast to make. Will definitely make this again. Hubby loved it too! This is surely not your mother's sloppy joes! I only gave it 4 stars because of the BBQ flavor.
