Most of the ingredients I have on hand in my pantry so I really only have to buy ground beef, green pepper, and hamburger buns, making this meal a less than $5 meal.
Here's what you'll need
Homemade Sloppy Joe's
1 lb ground beef
1 large green pepper
1 medium onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground chili powder
1/3 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
Begin by chopping your green pepper and onion.
In 1 Tbsp oil or cooking spray, sautee onion and green peppers until they are soft.
As your vegetables soften, add ground beef to mixture and brown.
Add spices and Worcestershire to ketchup.
Add tomato sauce to ketchup mixture and stir well.
Add sauce to meat mixture. Carefully fold into meat mixture until combined.
Once combined, add water and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes
Serve on your choice of bread and enjoy!
