Slow Cooker Saturday is here.
Can I get an ole?!?
I am so excited to share these yummy little sandwiches with you. I have been plotting, developing, and trying to figure out this Tex-Mex version of the traditional Sloppy Joes for awhile now.
See, I am not a big fan of the traditional Sloppy Joe, sorry Joe. However, the Hubby and my Little Men love them. I am, however a fan of Tex-Mex kind of food. So when I first thought it would be kind of genius to have a Sloppy Jose, I realized I had to figure out how to do the name justice with a great recipe.
Yes, I named the dish before I ever made it.
Figuring out a new recipe is tough, especially when you factor in recipe fails...or in my house a set of two thumbs down from Oldest and Middle...and by two thumbs down I mean sometimes it is two thumbs down and sometimes it is fake vomit and gagging face.
I hate recipe fails. It makes me grumpy.
So I was pretty stinkin' pleased that this recipe came out right the first time.
We loved it. They were the perfect amount of Joe and Jose. Everyone was equally happy. There were no thumbs down or fake vomit faces. Only grins and a good amount of silence as we shoved our faces.
This is a keeper and will make the permanent slow cooker rotation for sure.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, cooked
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
1/2 cup salsa
1 8 oz can tomato paste
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
crushed tortilla chips
Combine the cooked hamburger, tomatoes with chilies, salsa, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and sugar together in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
In the last 30 minutes, add the beans and corn.
Serve on a bun and top with crushed tortilla chips.
I hope you all are finding lots of inspiration on Slow Cooker Saturdays.
I hope they have given you meals full of happy faces and thumbs up.
I am always on the hunt for new Slow Cooker recipes to try.
I would love it if you shared what some of your favorite Slow Cooker recipes are!
