I have found the absolute PERFECT sloppy joes! I pinned this recipe for Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes a couple of months back at Kitchen Meets Girl. I didn't change anything in the actual recipe (and won't!), although my toppings are slightly different. We have had this twice. The first time on buns topped with corn chips, pico de gallo and avocado slices.
pico de gallo and sour cream.
4 slices bacon, chopped
1 lb lean ground beef (93/7)
1 onion, chopped (about one cup)
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 cup beef broth
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp hot sauce (Louisiana)
optional: corn chips, pico de gallo, avocado slices and sour cream
In large skillet cook the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels and drain off remaining grease from pan. In the same skillet brown the ground beef over med-hi heat. Then add the bacon, onion, jalapeno, garlic, chili powder, cumin and coriander.
