    SarasotaCook's Note:

    Another comfort food. Open face sloppy Joes on corn bread (with a few additions). It has a bit of a Mexican flare but still very mild. I also love to serve this with Mexican coleslaw, but the sloppy Joe's are great on their own. I even make this with ground turkey which has less fat, but that it is up to you. I like to serve over a spicy cornbread and top with some monterey jack cheese. It makes a great Saturday or Sunday dinner.

    Sloppy Joe Sauce




    1. 1
      Vegetables -- In a large saute pan, add the oil and bring to medium heat. Saute the celery, garlic, onion and green pepper until lightly sauteed.
    2. 2
      The turkey -- once the vegetables are soft, add the turkey inches Saute until golden brown and vegetables are soft.
    3. 3
      Add the tomatoes, sauce, and paste, seasoning, Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste. And just let simmer 30-40 minutes.
    4. 4
      Cornbread -- Mix the cornbread mix, the milk and eggs according to the box directions. Add the green chilies (lightly drained, I keep a little juice), seasoning and cheese. Bake according to directions. I like to use a 13x9" pan.
    5. 5
      Cut the cornbread into squares and then serve Sloppy Joe sauce over the top. Garnish with grated cheese and scallions.
    6. 6
      I love to serve with this with coleslaw or black beans or a simple green salad.

      This is a very nice change from regular sloppy joes. We enjoyed them open faced on the cornbread; that is a nice variation also. I will be making these again!!!

      I made half a recipe using beef to serve over grilled jalapeno corn flat bread. Loved all the spices and will make again soon.

      Was very good. I could tell it was going to be too mild for me so I added one diced jalapeno to the veggies. I also used some cayenne powder. I also added some cilantro I needed to use. I know it sounds like I am rewriting the recipe but it would be great as written!! I just tweak things to my liking. The cornbread was really good and would be a great recipe on its own. Thanks for posting!!
