Turkey Sloppy Joes

  • 1 lb. turkey (ground – I have ground chicken too)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil (I have used regular oil when I didn’t have olive oil)
  • 1 large red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp. leaf oregano, crumbled
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 can (8oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup bottled Black Betty’s regular BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped over stuffed green olives (optional)
  • 4 hard rolls, split (or hamburger buns)

Heat medium size nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey; cook, breaking meat with spoon until no longer pink. About 6 minutes. Place in colander to drain. Wipe skillet clean with paper towel. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, oregano, cumin and chili powder. Cook covered, 6 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add turkey, tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and olives. Bring to simmer, cook 5 minutes. Can be made two days ahead and refrigerated or frozen for up to one month. To serve, heat turkey mixture to simmer. Serve on rolls.
