Southwestern Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes have always been a favorite of mine. This recipe takes up the taste factor a notch and adds a Southwestern flare. I wish I had some grand hilarious story for you about how I messed this recipe up, had a crisis at the store, forgot to drain the meat, or added the wrong ingredients. It seems that the recipe is idiot proof! This recipe is from a family friend, Janet.

Southwestern Sloppy Joes
• 1 Tbsp. canola oil
• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 1 medium garlic clove, minced
• 1 tsp. chili powder
• ½ tsp dried oregano
• ¾ lb lean ground turkey
• 7 oz canned corn with red and green peppers with Mexican seasoning (also called Mexican), rinsed and drained
• 1 ½ cups salsa
• 1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar, packed
• 4 hamburger rolls, split
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in the oil, then add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the chili powder and oregano, and cook 1 minute more. Add the turkey and corn and cook until the mixture is nearly dry, about 4 minutes. Stir in the salsa and sugar and cook, stirring occasional, until slightly thickened and the turkey is cooked through, 4-5 minutes longer. Spoon over the opened rolls and serve.
