We made this tonight and it was a HUGE HIT.  I had to post it early.  The recipe is easy, quick and a huge rave from all, along with being perfect on a chilly night.

Sloppy Joes with Corn


• 1 teaspoon canola oil

• 1 cup finely chopped onion

• 1 cup finely chopped roasted red bell pepper

• ½ cup of finely chopped zucchini

• 2 garlic cloves, minced

• 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey

• 1 (6-ounce) can no salt-added tomato paste

• 2 teaspoons chili powder

• 1 teaspoon ground cumin

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

• 1 (15-ounce) can no salt-added corn, rinsed and drained

• 6 (1 1/2-ounce) thin sliced wheat buns or whole wheat tortillas, toasted


• ¼ cup of pumpkin, pureed squash, pureed sweet potatoes


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add meat to pan; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in tomato paste; cook 2 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and broth. Reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in corn; cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Spoon about 1 cup meat mixture on bottom half of each hamburger bun; cover with top half of each bun.
