How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add meat to pan; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in tomato paste; cook 2 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and broth. Reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in corn; cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Step 2

Spoon about 1 cup meat mixture on bottom half of each hamburger bun; cover with top half of each bun.

This was very good and easy to put together. I used about 2 cups of frozen corn instead of the can. Next time will try ground turkey. Very tasty!! A definite repeat.

This recipe was great and easy! Good for week night meals. There are so many things you can add to make this different every time you make it too.

I substitute ground turkey for the beef to make it a little healthier (my husband doesn't notice with all the sauce and other flavor) and use whole wheat buns - always toasted. Very yummy!

I loved this recipe. I made it exactly as directed with the exception of adding 2 small packets of splenda to the meat mixture. I tend to like sweetness in my sloppy joes and the splenda made it perfect without adding calories. I have since made this recipe again and frozen it. It defrosts very well.

My family enjoyed this and I will make it often. I brown the buns in the broiler which helps keep the sandwich from being soggy.

This is a very good recipe but I agree with other reviewers that it needs a little help. I used ground turkey meat and added 1/4 cup of brown sugar to sweeten it up. Have already made another batch to store in the freezer!

I made this recipe before and remembered that it needed it bit more flavor, so I added a couple of tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and about a third of cup of ketchup and it was incredible! I will definitely make it again, either for a weeknight dinner or a bbq or get together.
