Taco Joe's

Who hasn't had sloppy joe's at some point in their life and I am pretty sure tacos have been eaten too BUT what about a taco shell filled with a mexican flavored sloppy joe?! While this is simmering away in your crockpot be prepared for the scrumptious smell that is going to fill your house.

2 lbs ground turkey or beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp minced garlic 
1 cup chili sauce
1 can (8oz.) tomato sauce
1TBS worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pkg taco seasoning

buns or taco shells with toppings

Brown the ground turkey with the chopped onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink.
While you are browning the meat combine the remaining ingredients in your crockpot. Starting with the chili sauce and tomato sauce. Then stir in the worcestershire, water, pepper and taco seasoning. Carefully add the browned
meat to the sauce mixture and stir to coat.

Cook on low 6 hrs.

The best part about this recipe is that you have the choice to serve it either as a taco filler or as a sloppy joe.....either way tastes GREAT!! I personally liked the taco option the best! With a little shredded cheddar and sliced green onions....yum
