Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes

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.
Then we enjoyed the leftovers as open-faced sandwiches topped with corn chips, pico de gallo and sour cream.
Both were soooo yummy!! I can hardly wait to make this again!!

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.
Continue cooking for about five minutes or until onion is tender.
Meanwhile in medium bowl mix together the broth, tomato sauce, brown sugar, worcestershire, vinegar and hot sauce. Once onions are tender, stir the broth mixture into the beef mixture.
Simmer until the liquid reduces to your desired consistency, about 5-10 minutes should do unless you want it very dry and not at all sloppy. Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!
