Roasted Red Pepper Sloppy Joes
What I love about this stuff is that it's pretty low sodium but so full of flavor and you can adjust it to your taste. Here's what you'll need:
Roasted Red Pepper Sloppy Joe's
1 lb 90/10 ground chicken
1 cup Trader Joe's Low Sodium Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
1/2 small can Trader Joe's Organic Tomato Paste
1/4 cup red peppers, diced
1/4 cup onions, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp black or white pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
In a small crock pot, add thawed ground chicken. Let it got for an hour or until thoroughly cooked. Drain most of the juices so it's not super runny when it's done. Get a big spoon or spatula and break the chicken up so there are no big honkin' chunks. (You know what I'm talking about!) Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Let it go another hour on low.
This isn't really a put it in the crock pot all day kind of recipe, more for a "one pot meal" kind of thing.
If you want to put it in before you leave for work, you could do so on a "keep warm" setting but it cooks quickly so nothing hotter than "keep warm." But when it's done, you will be one happy camper!
