Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes

The quintessential kid pleasing sandwich, but better! While searching for a new way to use some ground turkey, I came across an unusual recipe for Sweet & Sour Chili in Better Homes and Gardens Low-Salt Cooking. After looking at the ingredients, I decided to try altering the recipe sightly to try making some killer sloppy joes – something I haven’t had since being placed on this infernal low sodium diet. I couldn’t be happier with the results! Tangy, sweet and slightly sour, these sloppy joes are every bit as good as the salty ones I used to eat. Sure to become a new found favorite for you too. ENJOY!!

Serves 4.

    Just made the sloppy joe dish and it is delicious! I’m going to serve it over quinoa and squash. I’ve loved eating all my foods in a big bowl.

    Man Alive was this good! And I also made the sweet potato and black bean for wraps! Really good. My tortillas ore just OK. Shame the Lavish aren’t available anymore. I would have liked to of tried those.
    I’m working my way thru the whole site!! 😉

    Thank You!!!!!!

      Hahahah YAY! So glad you found some more tasty favorites! And YES. Those lavash were the bomb. So sad they’re not available any longer. Keep your eyes peeled whenever you’re out for a replacement. Seriously, you never know when you might find a new (and previously unknown) product. Always a great day!

      Best wishes to you,

    I made these for dinner and my family loved them. I did use fresh jalapeno peppers instead of red peppers, because we like spicy food. Otherwise everything was the same.
