Instead of serving up the same old sloppy joes (again) or opting for less-healthy buffalo chicken wings, try combining the two into one unique dish that will soon become a new family favorite.
Buffalo chicken sloppy joes have all of the flavor of buffalo-style chicken wings in the form of a classic sloppy joe — meaning it can be served up on a bun or on a bed of lettuce for a low-carb twist.
This recipe from Spoonful of Flavor calls for lean ground chicken and veggies such as onions and carrots. You can make your own hot sauce to accompany the meat and veggie mixture using ingredients such as tomato sauce, buffalo wing sauce and apple cider vinegar.
Once it’s all mixed together, it’s time to serve this new take on the sloppy joe, and top it all off with homemade bleu cheese ranch sauce.
Once you’ve given the buffalo chicken version a try, you can begin to experiment with more innovative takes on the classic sloppy joe recipe.
For instance, this pot roast sloppy joe mash-up from Dinner Then Dessert is just the kind of thing that will keep your family on their toes. The recipe calls for mushrooms, carrots, onions and ground beef, combined with beef broth and Worcestershire sauce to create a messy, delicious dinner.
And this recipe from The Toasty Kitchen proves that you can also combine a sloppy joe with a Philly cheesesteak by swapping steak for ground beef and mixing up Worcestershire sauce, beef broth and plenty of cheese.
You can even continue the sloppy joe fever come taco night with this recipe for taco sloppy joes from Belle Of The Kitchen which combines ground beef, salsa and taco seasoning to create a messy meat layer reminiscent of a sloppy joe. Top with guacamole and all of the usual taco favorites and serve this up on a bun.
So, which one of these non-typical sloppy joes will you be making tonight?
