Uncle Pete's Sloppy Joes

This hearty recipe comes from the creator of the award-winning Uncle Pete's BBQ Sauces from South Carolina, and is sure to become a family favorite. If you enjoy hot & spicy foods, simply add a minced jalapeno pepper or some pickled jalapeno rings (drained). I've included my suggestions in parentheses.

1 lb lean ground beef (or ground venison, or even ground turkey)
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
(Opt: 1 minced jalapeno pepper OR 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno rings, drained)
1 16oz can Pork & Beans
1 bottle Uncle Pete's BBQ Sauce, any flavor
1/2 tsp salt (I omit this)
1/2 tsp chili powder

In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, cook the first 3 ingredients (plus the optional jalapeno if using) until the meat is well browned, about 10 minutes (when it's done, I drain off excess fat). Stir in the remaining ingredients and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve on rolls or buns, with plenty of napkins handy!

Zestfully yours,

PS: Uncle Pete's BBQ Sauce comes in 3 delicious varieties -- Original, Hickory and Spicy -- and you get a FREE recipe sheet when you order it from the Carolina Sauce Company.
