We needed some comfort food on this cold and dreary night, so I decided on a healthier version of a school cafeteria favorite - Sloppy Joes.
1 carrot, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1/2 medium sweet onion, diced
1/2 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 lb ground turkey
1 chipotle, diced and 1 tsp adobo sauce
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt to taste
1 - 8 oz can tomato sauce
4 Tbsp smokey barbeque sauce
Coat a cast iron skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. When pan is hot, add carrot and celery, saute for 2 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and saute 4 minutes longer. Add ground turkey and cook, stirring to crumble meat, until browned. Add chipotle and adobo sauce, cook an additional 2 minutes. Add spices and sauces, cook until sauce reduces, about 15 minutes.
Serve on a bun with cole slaw on the side.
