Sloppy Joe Slaw

I love broccoli slaw.

I love sloppy joes.

So of course I jumped at the chance to combine the two for an another awesome version of the sloppy joe. 

Hungry Girl's recipe was super simple, just ground turkey, broccoli slaw and sloppy joe sauce.  I like to make my own sauce whenever possible. So I did.  I also added some more veggies.  Still a super simple recipe and amazingly delicious!!

Sloppy Joe Slaw
Adapted from Hungry Girl

1 lb. ground turkey, 97%
1 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
2 - 12 oz. bags of broccoli slaw
2 cups sloppy joe sauce

Brown ground turkey with onions and peppers.  Add garlic, cook for another minute or so.  Add broccoli slaw and sloppy joe sauce.  Mix together and cook for about 10 minutes or until broccoli slaw has softened some. 

BBQ Sloppy Joe Sauce
1 - 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 - 6 oz. can tomato paste
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
2 tsp. hot sauce
2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper

Mix ingredients together and stir.  This will make more than the 2 cups needed for the recipe. You can save it for something else or just add more to your sloppy joe.
