Think of this loose meat sandwich as a spiced-up version of the classic Sloppy Joe.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large nonstick skillet cook ground turkey, onion, and poblano pepper until turkey is no longer pink, stirring to break up turkey as it cooks. Stir in tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and garlic powder. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bun bottoms on serving plates; add cheese slices. Top each with turkey mixture. If desired, top with basil leaves. Add bun tops.

*Handling Hot Peppers:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

I meant for this to be 5 stars, not 3. It's so easy and makes 4 generous servings. Serve it with a salad and corn on the cob and you are easily set. I've made it several times and haven't changed a thing.
