Chipotle Sloppy Joes

By March 11, 2015December 27th, 2021No Comments

During the week, I am all about quick dinner recipes that help get our family together around the dinner table. The other day I had thawed out a few pounds of beef and turkey and could not decide for the life of me what I wanted to make with it.

Chipotle Sloppy Joes

I wanted to come up with a new recipe but was craving sloppy joes. I decided to take a traditional sloppy joe recipe and give it a Mexican flair with some chipotle and taco seasoning. We then served these ‘sloppy joes’ on a bun with a chipotle mayo (yum!) and some avocados, cilantro and pepperjack cheese. The overall combination was really delicious and a nice change from tacos or sloppy joes.  Enjoy!Chipotle Sloppy Joes

  • 2-3 lbs. ground beef or half beef and half turkey
  • 1 red onion chopped small
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbls. chili powder
  • 1 Tbls. cumin powder
  • 2 tsp. taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 oz. tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup can diced tomatoes
  • 3-4 diced chipotles
  • Hamburger buns
  • Avocados sliced
  • Sliced pepperjack cheese
  • Cilantro chopped (optional garnish)
  • Chipotle Mayo:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce chopped fine


  • For the mayo, combine the mayonnaise and chipotle peppers and serve on the buns. Slice the avocados, cheese and chop the cilantro. In a saute pan, add the chopped onion and bring pan up to medium-high heat. Add the ground beef/turkey to the pan and break apart with a wooden spoon until crumbled. Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer on low-medium heat until cooked through and seasons combine. If the meat is too dry, you can always add extra diced tomatoes if you would like. Serve the warm meat on a hamburger bun with the chipotle mayo, sliced avocados, cheese and fresh cilantro for garnish.
