OK...so I liedJ While we actually DID NOT have a dinner that included avocados last night (we had "Cornbread Salad"...check it out! It's soooo good!), the recipe I thought I'd show you today STILL included avocadoJ I just can't get away from it...hehehhehehehehehe Anyways, here was a great dinner we had a few weeks ago (which I *ahem* never got around to posting) that is still brimming with veggies:
Fajita Sloppy Joes!
Don't get me wrong, I love a good ole' fashioned sloppy Joe, but I love seeing all the new cool, variations that they've made over the years. (Here's a delicious Philly Cheesesteak Joe, which reminds me that I need to make this again ASAPJ) So here's my attempt to throw my hat in the ring with my own version.
Into the pan, I tossed a pound of ground turkey. I broke it up with the spoon and cooked it until it was all browned up...
I spiced up my 'joe with a bit of chili powder...
...and a little cumin for a bit of a southwestern flairJ
Then, to make the sandwich a little SAUCY, I mixed in a couple tablespoons of beef broth...(just enough to coat the meat)
...and a couple shakes of Worcestershire. Because, well, everything is better with WorcestershireJ
Finally, into the pan went some peppers & onions. You can certainly use FRESH (especially NOW!), but I just so happened to have this bag in the freezer and they worked out great...
I would use a small onion, 1 red pepper & 1 green if using fresh...and bag of frozen. I had only used half a bag and wished I had tossed in more. Because you can never go wrong with MORE vegetablesJ
Simmer everything together for about 10 minutes...
...and you're good to go.
Top your burger bun with fajita meat on one side andddddddd.....
...wait for it! ....
...GUACAMOLE on the otherJ
Are you surprised?J
Savory, spicy meat, cool & creamy avocado and tangy peppers & onions...definite winner in my bookJ
And Scott & I have been on a COLE SLAW KICK all summer! I think I finally made Scott a 'cabbage convert'J He used to say he hated the stuff and is now polishing off the bowls anytime we have leftoversJ SUCCESS.
(ps-to lighten up the slaw, use my trick of 1 part mayo to 2 parts non-fat greek yogurt for the mix!)
Alrighty, I must head off to go prep myself for the gymnastics TEAM FINAL in about 1 hour (watch live online here!). I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE gymnastics, so OLYMPIC TEAM FINAL is definitely a little like Christmas day around hereJ
Have a great Tuesday!
