Cooking Class: Southwestern Sloppy Joe

How To, Poultry, Recipes


Typical meat-based dishes are great candidates for nutrient loading!  Not only does adding more vegetables, spices, and other nutrient enhancement stretch the dish into more servings, it allows us to get to the recommended 7-9 servings of VEGETABLES everyday!  

This flavor combination has been a favorite of mine for years, and is the perfect addition to a casual buffet or gameday get together.  The honey-lime coleslaw is optional, but adds another serving of vegetables and a welcome crunch! 

When I first started making this I enjoyed it on a regular bun, then moved to a gluten-free option, and now eat it simply on its' own paired with the crunchy coleslaw or as a filling in cooked acorn squash or baked sweet potato.  Leftovers are great for breakfast, too!
