BBQ Sloppy Joes

Family and guests can have this over hamburger buns while you enjoy it on top of a cooked veggy like broccoli or cauliflower. You get your protein and complex carbs that way, plus lots of flavor!

1 lb lean ground turkey (or a mix of turkey & beef)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium red or green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce (we like KC Masterpiece Original)
1/2 cup condensed cream of mushroom soup (with reduced fat & sodium)
1/2 cup beef or vegetable broth
4 ounces shredded 2% cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)

Brown the meat in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat until browned, breaking it up into small pieces with a spatula. Drain and set aside.

Add the onion and pepper to the skillet and cook over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes or until softened. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Cook over medium heat until the cheese is melted. Add the cooked meat, stir, and cook for another minute or until everything is heated through.

4-6 servings
