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!!
