Some meals are just meant to be messy. Sloppy Joes is definitely one of those, so get out a napkin (or two) and tuck it under your chin. There is nothing like a huge heaping of meat piled generously on a crisp, toasted bun. This messy meal will continue to expand its flavors as it sits. I have to say that there are some things that I really look forward to having as leftovers.
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 Large Onion, Diced
- 5 cloves Garlic, Minced
- 3 pounds - Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
- 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
- 3 tablespoons Sante Fe Seasoning

- 2 teaspoons Paprika
- 2 12oz bottles Heinz Chili Sauce
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- 8 to 10 hamburger buns, split and toasted
- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil, onions and garlic. Sauté until onions start to become soft.
- Stir in ground beef. Break up meat with a wooden spoon and brown, until it is no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain out the fat.
- Add dry mustard, Sante Fe seasoning, chili pepper and paprika. Stir to coat the meat and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add Heinz Chili Sauce. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Reduce heat to low and simmer. Stir occasionally until the flavors meld, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
