Not your typical sloppy joe recipe, these sloppy joes have an enchilada twist with delicious Tex-Mex flavors.
As much as I want to eat a cupcake for dinner, let’s face it – we need some real food in our bodies to keep us going and energized through this busy time of year. And today’s recipe is a great recipe to have on hand every time of year.
Sloppy Joe = obsessed.
Today, I’m giving them a little bit of a Tex-Mex twist. And they are so easy, because the sauce is simply Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce. Some ground beef, some diced jalapeños, some enchilada sauce, and some cilantro. Throw some Pepperjack cheese on top, and BAM – dinner is done. There will be no complaints about this being a boring sloppy joe recipe!

Enchilada Sloppy Joe Recipe
Not your typical sloppy joe recipe, these sloppy joes have an enchilada twist with delicious tex-mex flavors.
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 30 mins
- Total Time: 40 mins
- Yield: 4 servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, diced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce
- 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
- 4 hamburger buns
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeño and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add in the ground beef and cook, breaking it up as it cooks, until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain off any excess grease. Pour in the enchilada sauce, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.
- Turn the oven on to broil. Place the bun bottoms on a baking sheet and lightly toast. Top the buns with the meat mixture, then the cheese. Place the bun tops on the baking sheet, cut side up (to toast) and place the baking sheet in the oven. Broil just until the cheese is melted and the top of the buns are toasted.
- Place the top of the buns on the mixture and serve.
I used the mild enchilada sauce, but feel free to do medium or hot for more flavor and heat!
