Quick, Easy, & Healthy Dinners - Sloppy Joes



Sometimes I work late, and I can't always make dinner.  On those nights, I pass the baton to my boyfriend.  He can man a mean grill and bake a serious frozen pizza, but I'm not always in the mood for grilled sausage or pizza.  

Last night I asked him if he would make us some Sloppy Joes!  It's quick, easy, AND if you use the right ingredients it can be healthy!  



Here's what my FBP did: 

Sloppy Joes

1 can sloppy joe mix 
1 lb. ground turkey
2 garlic cloves
1/2 white onion
1 bell pepper
1 - 2 chipotle peppers 
1 bag of wheat buns 

Brown the ground turkey.  Then add the chopped onions and bell peppers.  Let them sweat for a few minutes, then add chopped garlic and chipotle peppers.  Then, add one can of sloppy joe mix!  

*Notice I did not add any salt to the recipe.  One thing about the sloppy joe mix in the can is that is has a lot of sodium and sugar, so you don't need to add any extra to the dish.  In a pinch, this recipe can get dinner on the table without having to eat fast food or frozen pizza.  

Done and DONE!  Easy, quick, AND healthy!
