Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes

Another from BHG – Better Homes & Gardens

Ingredients:

1 ½ pounds uncooked ground chicken or turkey
1 ½ pounds ground pork (I use Roast meat, Shredded Chicken, whatever I have at the time)
2 cups chopped onions (2 large)
4 cups bottled salsa (medium hotness)
1 ½ cups chopped green sweet peppers (2 medium)
1 ½ cups fresh corn or frozen whole kernel corn
2 tablespoons chopped canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce*
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
1 ½ teaspoons garlic salt
16 – 20 6-inch flour tortillas or hoagie rolls, split and toasted
Vegetable oil
Assorted toppers, such as chopped cilantro, diced avocado, chopped tomato, and/or crumbled Cotija cheese (optional)

In a very large skillet cook ground chicken, ground pork, and onions until meat is brown and onions are tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.

In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker combine meat mixture, salsa, sweet peppers, corn, chipotle pepper**, chili powder, coriander, and garlic salt.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.

Meanwhile, add tortillas, one at a time, to hot oil; cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or just until golden. Using tongs, remove tortillas from hot oil. Fold fried tortillas over a paper-towel-wrapped rolling pin or a wire tortilla rack placed over a paper-towel-lined pan. Let cool until firm.

To serve, use a slotted spoon to spoon meat mixture into fried tortilla shells. If desired, add toppers.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
