Review: Southwest Sloppy Joes
  Re: (...)
This recipe is in the Weeknights Vol 2 cookbook and I have passed it over several times. The title has never grabbed my attention. Both of my daughters have fiercely recommended it saying that it is always a huge hit with their guests. Last night I finally made it and am so glad I did! The sloppy joe filling is made with ground turkey and a wonderful combination of veges and spices. There is a slaw to pile on top that will become my go-to slaw recipe and pairs perfectly with the somewhat spicy sloppy joe filling. I used shredded broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and cabbage instead of the usual slaw mix. I could not find jarred mangoes and the fresh did not seem ripe, so for the suggested side, I just served orange segments in the yogurt sauce. I am fairly sure we all got our recommended daily serving of fruits and veges and in the most delicious manner. This would be a perfect super bowl menu item.

Everything tastes better Alfresco!

I passed this one up for the same reason you did, Theresa. Now I'll have to go back and add it to the short list, also. Thanks for the great review.
Keep your mind wide open.

Wait, wait, wait....what, where, when? Can someone post the recipe please?

Icy, if no one gets to it, I'll try to type it up tomorrow. I have papers to grade tonight. Sadly, we don't have MEMBER'S PLUS anymore. IF WE DID HAVE MEMBER'S PLUS, SOMEONE COULD COME ON AND POST IT STRAIGHT FROM THE ARCHIVES! Then I wouldn't have to type it out for you! You listening, Brian, Carlos, and JOY?!?!?!?!?!

Okay, so it's a special publication, which was not a part of the archives which were available to the Member's Plus people, but I thought I'd make a point here!
Keep your mind wide open.

Thanks Sonja! I was just going to post the recipe. I had a kitty on my lap that I did not want to disturb and the cookbook was in the kitchen. Glad I checked before starting to type! I had another one of these tonight for dinner and it tasted just as wonderful as last night, though I think the chipotle heat came through more. Great with beer!!!

Also want to mention that with the rest of the corn and black beans not used in the sloppy joe mix, I made a little healthy snack for myself. I mixed them together with a little lime juice, honey, chili seasoning, olive oil, and cilantro. Yum!

Everything tastes better Alfresco!
