Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes made with ground beef, bell peppers, onions, corn, black beans and salsa topped with cheddar cheese will replace your next Taco Tuesday!
Tex-Mex Sloppy Joes
And it’s goooood. It’s like your favorite taco flavors but saucier. Plus the added veggies which are browned along side a generous topping of cheddar cheese. I won’t lie, this was our dinner three times the week we tested it because I wanted to eat it for every meal.
It’s also great for lunch by the way. Warmed up slightly and spooned over lettuce, tomatoes and cubed cheddar. Then top with a dressing made of sour cream and salsa.
Or make a burrito bowl easy by topping this over rice… or nachos by topping chips with the mixture and nacho cheese sauce. There’s no wrong way to eat this recipe!

WHAT GOES GOOD WITH SLOPPY JOES FOR A SIDE DISH?
TIPS FOR MAKING THESE Tex-mex SLOPPY JOES:
- Rinse the black beans and corn well to reduce the amount of sodium.
- If you add taco seasoning from a packet you will need more than one.
- Make sure your ingredients are ready ahead of time, don’t let the pan scorch.
- Stop cooking when its just slightly too wet still, the tomato sauce as it thickens too much can become bitter and burned.
- If you want to meal prep just leave the sauce extra saucy before shutting off the heat. You may need a bit of water when reheating.
- You can add in chunks of cheddar cheese like in this Bacon, Beer and Cheese Sloppy Joes or just stick to the shredded variety. Either way don’t mix it in too much.
