Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe

Do you remember this from SNL?

Anyway, we made Sloppy Joes the other night and I thought of this song. The recipe that we used is actually kinda healthy. Tasty and good for you? What’s not to like?

Jalapeno, bell pepper, and garlic.

I decided to use black beans instead of red or pinto beans.

Got these from Wal-Mart.

What? They’re super cheap and taste the same as the name brand stuff.

Adding the veggies.

And the pièce de résistance.

What was your favorite school lunch?                

Sloppy Joes from Ellie Krieger

Ingredients

1 pound extra-lean ground beef

1 onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeno, minced

1 red pepper, diced

1 can small red beans or pinto beans, preferably low sodium drained and rinsed

1 ½ cups no-salt-added tomato sauce

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon molasses

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon mustard powder

¾ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

8 whole-wheat burger buns

Directions

Brown the meat and the onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Pour the drippings out of the pan and discard. Add the garlic, jalapeno, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more. Place a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve.
