Enchilada Sloppy Joes

I made these for dinner the other night and everyone liked them.  I used only 1/2 of this Texas jalapeno and used a medium enchilada sauce.  It had a bit of a kick, so you can easily tone that down with less spice!


Enchilada Sloppy Joes

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, diced
1 lb ground beef
1 can (10 oz)  Enchilada Sauce
½ cup cilantro, chopped
1 cup shredded pepperjack cheese Beth used Monterrey jack
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.
