Turkey Sloppy Joes


Weekend, why can’t you stay longer? The weather was gorgeous. It was perfect for sleeping at night!

I went to the movies again this weekend. I saw The Hundred-Foot Journey. It was an ok movie. The story was very sweet but I think it needed a little more excitement but it was still good.

My husband  picked the last of the vegetables from the garden. Of course I had to make salsa!

I made salsa roja-red salsa.

And Salsa Verde de Tomatillo-Green Tomatillo Salsa.

The best thing out of the garden were these beauties.

These beauties will be in some delicious sweets soon!

Are you a big carnival/festival goer? I am not too big on them but this weekend we did go get dinner at a festival not far from us. The food was amazing. There was so much to choose from. I chose this Pambazo.


Sorry about the pic! People actually stop to look at me when I am taking pictures of my food. It’s such a normal thing now that why would people find it weird?

I have never heard of these awesome sandwiches. This one had chorizo and potatoes with toppings of cabbage, tomatoes, sour cream, and cotija cheese. the bread was slathered in some kind of pepper sauce. It was pretty messy but I didn’t really care…I still ate it all!

Even after all this food I still have a recipe to share.

Sloppy Joes. Sloppy and delicious!

Not all sloppy Joes are good. This one was delicious!

Turkey Sloppy Joes


*1/4 cup ketchup
*1 tablespoon dijon mustard
*1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
*2 tablespoons tomato paste
*1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
*8 oz can tomato sauce
*1 tablespoon olive oil
*3 cloves garlic, minced
*1 large yellow onion, chopped
*16 oz extra lean ground turkey
*1 tablespoon chili powder
*1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
*6 whole wheat buns


In a small bowl, whisk together ketchup, dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, red wine vinegar and tomato sauce. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion and cook, stirring as needed, for 5 minutes or until translucent.

Add turkey and cook until browned through, breaking it up with a spatula/spoon as it cooks. Add chili powder, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes more and then add the ketchup mixture, stirring to evenly coat turkey mixture.

Simmer for 5 minutes more, or until thickened.

Enjoy and make sure you lick your fingers!
