Chipotle Sloppy Joes

Excellent! These sandwiches are very easy to make but different from the everyday sloppy joe – they have a bit of a kick, but not too bad.
  • 2 ½ cups Vidalia or other sweet onion
  • 7 oz chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • ½ cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 oz no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 5 hamburger buns, toasted

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; cover and cook 8 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside.

Remove 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can; set aside. Remove 1 chipotle chile from can; chop and set aside. Reserve remaining chiles and adobo sauce for another use.
