Mexican Sloppy Joes

An easy to make weeknight favorite that's kid friendly. Mexican Sloppy Joes will quickly become a favorite.

Mexican Sloppy Joes
 I have a little soft spot for sloppy joes.
Alright you caught me and Mexican food too!
These are amazing with taco seasoned ground beef mixed with black beans topped on a toasted bun with my famous Pico De Gallo and avocado.
Need I say more?
I really couldn't decide whether to call these Mexican Sloppy Joes or Tex/Mex Sloppy Joes so I just went with the first.
These are quick, cheap, easy and well sloppy.
I love quick dinner ideas the kids devour and are healthy too.

Mean while make some Pico De Gallo and enjoy a few bites while the mixture finishes cooking..
(This is even better when made ahead of time.)

Top toasted Hamburger Buns with hamburger/black bean mixture and top with Pico De Gallo, cheese and sliced avocado. Even a little sour cream or greek yogurt would be amazing.

  2. Neat recipe Serena, now we don't have to be dependent on on always buying those little cans of sauce. I like being able to make things like this from scratch.

  3. I like to make sloppy joes about once a month. They are a filling and inexpensive meal for the 3 of us. I just love this spin on them. We also eat tacos that often if not more, so these will be loved by all I just know. Thank you for the recipe. More info at this web site.
