SLOPPY SECONDS JOE

There's no shame in going second so long as it's sloppy

There’s no shame in going second so long as it’s sloppy

No one likes to admit to having taken sloppy seconds, but we’ve all done it.  We all slip up and go there whether it’s hitting it after your best friend, sibling or in my case boss.  As long as you keep it under wraps and don’t allow this booty call to evolve into a five-year relationship then it’s no harm no foul.  Just move on knowing you got your forbidden rocks off and got away with it.  Well done, MacGuyver!  Now you just need to figure out an exit using only dental floss and a used condom.  Remember that your relationship with your homie is way more important than a piece of strange they already discarded anyway.  But sloppy isn’t always bad.  Sloppy can be damn good when stuffed into a bread roll and smothered with avocado.  So embrace the tangy terrific taste of a Sloppy Seconds Joe without shame or fear of retribution.

10. 2 orange or red bell peppers chopped coarsely
11. 1 pound of ground beef or turkey meat

Step 2
Add the chopped chilies and cook until the spice releases (approx 2 minutes).  Pour in the beer, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and cook until the liquids evaporate and thicken (approx 20 minutes).  Turn off the heat and stir in the green onions.

Step 3
Split each roll down the middle, leaving the base in tact.  Pull each roll open and spoon in the sloppy Joe mixture, crowning it with avocado if you so desire.  Serve it up sloppy, Joe.

    hey- what kind of dried chilies are you using? Are they more on the hot side? Or are they mild?

    • cooktobang says:

      The types of chilies I use depends on the recipe and who I am serving it to. I personally prefer something pretty hot, but I must take into account that many people don’t have my extreme palette. In the SLOPPY SECONDS JOE recipe I used a dried New Mexico chili that is flavorful, but not too hot. If you wanted more kick you could use a poblano, jalepeno or habenero.

    I finally got around to making these awesome sloppy seconds joes for the boyfriend and I- and they were GREAT!! I used the New Mexico chili- nice and mild, and seemed to help the color. The sauce that the beer/ketchup/worcestershire sauce combo makes is so good- really puts that canned shit to shame.

    We put avocado on them as you did- really really tasty. And yes, if you must know, there was banging afterwards. Yay COOK TO BANG!!!

    ps- i love that you put avocados on everything- we do as well. SEKSI. keep doin that voodoo that you do- thanks for the recipe!

  3. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues
    with your site. It appears as if some of the written text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue
    with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you
