Spicy Turkey Sloppy Joes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/4 cups ale or beer
  • 3/4 cup bottled chili sauce or ketchup
  • 1 4-ounce can diced green chilies
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 6 sourdough rolls, split, toasted
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce or packaged garden salad mix

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add turkey, green pepper and garlic and saute until turkey is no longer pink, breaking up meat with back of fork, about 10 minutes. Mix in chili powder; stir 1 minute. Add next 4 ingredients. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until mixture thickens, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Mix in green onions; season with salt and pepper.

Arrange roll bottoms on plates. Spoon sloppy joe mixture over; top with lettuce and roll tops.

Yield: 6 servings

Made in the crockpot but didn't really eat (ER visit interfered). A bit watery so I thickened with cornmeal. Peter thought it should be more tomato-y, less spicy/hot.
