Sloppy Joe Sandwich Filling


The traditional sloppy Joe goes south of the border in this tangy, flavorful sandwich filling recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup chopped poblano chile pepper
  • 8 ounces extra-lean ground beef
  • 4 ounces chorizo sausage
  • 1 ½ tablespoons red enchilada dry seasoning (such as Savory Spice Shop® Canyon Road)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato powder (such as Savory Spice Shop®)
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 avocado, sliced (Optional)
  • ½ cup shredded Oaxaca cheese, or to taste (Optional)
  • 4 hamburger bun, split and toasted


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion and poblano pepper until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate. Add ground beef and chorizo to the skillet. Cook, stirring often to break up meat, until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add enchilada seasoning and tomato powder. Add water, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Return cooked onion mixture to the skillet. Simmer until flavors combine, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Serve meat mixture on toasted buns topped with Oaxaca cheese and avocado.
