Chipotle Sloppy Joes with Crunchy Coleslaw

I found this recipe in a Woman's World magazine and decided to give it a try.

Hubby is opposed to corn in almost anything, so we had a "pizza is on speed dial" compromise.

We all ate, and decided we liked it!

Changes I would make:
1. None of us were crazy about having the slaw on the sandwich. When I make it again, I will leave it off.
2. The slaw itself didn't have much flavor. I would boost the vinegar, salt, and pepper.

¼ Cup plain non fat yogurt
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tsp cider vinegar
½ Tsp hot sauce
⅛ Tsp salt
⅛ Tsp pepper
1 ½ Cup prepared coleslaw mix
½ Red pepper, diced

1 Lb ground beef
¼ Cup chopped onion
¾ Cup ketchup
½ Cup frozen corn
½ Cup canned black beans (rinsed and drained)
½ Cup tomato sauce
1-2 Tsp minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
½ Tsp cumin
¼ Cup chopped cilantro
¼ Tsp salt
¼ Tsp pepper
Hamburger buns

1. Combine first 6 ingredients in bowl
2. Add coleslaw mix and red pepper, toss to coat
3. Cover, refrigerate until ready to serve

1. Heat large non stick skillet over medium heat until hot.
2. Add beef and onion, cook, stirring occasionally
3. Pour off drippings
4. Stir in ketchup, corn, beans, tomato sauce, chipotle peppers, and cumin, bring to a boil.
5. Reduce heat, simmer 5 minutes, stirring often
6. Stir in cilantro, salt, and pepper
7. Place meat mixture on bottom half, top with coleslaw, and top of bun.

  4. My husband loves sloppy joes and chile. What a great combination!

  5. That does look interesting ... I might have to give this a try!

  6. We love our sloppy joe's and the coleslaw sound like an interesting addition to the traditional recipe. Did the taste not work well together?

    1. The tastes did work well together, I just felt the slaw needed a little more pizzaz. More seasonings would be enough.

  7. I think this recipe would be a big hit at our house. Pinning!
