Enchilada Sloppy Joes

A delicious twist on a sloppy joe. With the addition of tex mex flavors of the enchilada sauce, jalapeño, onions, cilantro, and Pepper jack cheese, these are so good I love the combination and the pepper jack cheese along with the jalapeño gives these delicious sandwiches a little kick of heat. Perfect dinner, make some fries on the side and you have a perfect weekday meal that will be on your table in less than 30 minutes. Great recipe that I found, made and the entire family loves.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeds removed, diced tiny pieces 
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 ( 10 ounce can) Enchilada sauce 
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 4-6 hamburger buns
  1. In a large skillet heat the olive oil  over medium heat. Then add the onion and jalapeño and cook, stirring constantly until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add in the ground beef and cook, breaking it up until browned and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain off any grease. Pour in the enchilada sauce, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.
  2. Meanwhile place your oven on to broil. Place the bun bottoms on a baking sheet and lightly toast. Keep an eye on them or they will burn, you only need to lightly toast for 1-2 minutes. I watch the entire time so they do not burn. Take the buns out then top the buns with the meat mixture, then the cheese. Place the bun tops on the baking sheet, cut side up (to toast) and place the baking sheet in the oven. Broil just until the cheese is melted and the top of the buns are toasted.
  3. Place the top of the buns on the mixture and serve.
