Turkey Sloppy Joes

I know how hypocritical this is since I just talked about eating less poultry and less meat.  BUT, I was looking through the Cook This, Not That book the other night and found a recipe for turkey sloppy joes. 

cook this I check out cookbooks from the library to get new recipe ideas, but these books are extremely popular.  You see them everywhere!

Here’s the recipe that I revised just a little:

1     tsp olive oil
1     lb lean ground turkey
1     medium onion, diced
1     medium green bell pepper, diced
2     cloves garlic, minced
1/2  c ketchup
1     Tbsp chili powder
2     tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
4     whole wheat hamburger buns, warmed

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, onion, pepper, and garlic. Sauté, stirring occasionally, the onions are translucent.


Add the turkey sauté until cooked completely. 


Add the ketchup, chili powder, and Worcestershire. I also added several shakes of hot sauce.  Reduce the heat to low and simmer for at least 15 minutes. 


Serve with the buns. Makes 4 servings
