BBQ Joes

It's time for an update of the traditional Sloppy Joes, and here it is! This is an easy, budget-friendly meal that's sure to please.

Serves: 4


  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 4 hamburger buns, split (see Tip)


  1. In a large saucepan, brown the ground meat and onion over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes; drain off any excess fat.
  2. Add the barbecue sauce and pepper, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Stir in the cheese, spoon over the buns, and serve.

Preparation Tip

I like to toast the hamburger buns so they hold up better with this hearty topper.

Sorry no chili's with this dish. The kids will love it! Chili said so!
