Episode 29 - Man Food

Share it Please
a.k.a. chili sloppy joes!  Every man likes sloppy joes.  It's just biology.  Our sloppy man joes came with a side of roasted asparagus...not exactly traditional but very seasonal!'s all about balance...right?!  Man food with girl food.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 pkg Club House Spicy Chili seasoning (cheating...I know.  We had to work and it was late)
1 cup canned, diced tomatoes
3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
hot sauce and dried chili peppers to taste

For each sandwich - 1 bun and a tbsp of salsa con queso (or more if you feel like it)

Heat your olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high and when its hot and sizzle-y add your onions and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.  It should smell garlic-y and delicious.  Add in your beef and brown completely.  Drain some of the beef fat off then add the red pepper, chili seasoning, diced tomatoes, black beans and tomato paste.  Cook for another 5 minutes.  Add the Worcestershire and hot sauce, and heat through.  Voila - sloppy joe filling!  This makes A LOT of filling...probably 5 or 6 joes worth.

Toast your buns then cover 1 side of each with salsa con queso.  Spoon your filling on the other side of the bun.  Close up the sandwich and enjoy!  Be warned, they're sloppy!

P.s. be warned that this was typed while watching Fubar and drinking a glass of wine.  Again...balance!
