Chili Dog Sloppy Joe


 Quick and kid friendly meals are always a good thing in my household.  My kids are pretty good eaters (on a good day), but they can get picky from time to time. When I make sloppy joe's I know that they will be enjoyed by all... adults and kids. This Chili Dog Sloppy Joe is such a fun play on the idea of eating a hot dog with chili topping.   It was a budget friendly meal that we rounded out with a salad.  You can also eat it with potato salad, french fries or chips.  

 Kaiser or Hoagie style rolls

Meat filling:
1lb of ground lean meat
4-5 hot dogs diced small
1/2 cup of onion chopped
1/2 cup of diced green bell pepper
1-2 cloves of grated garlic
red chili flakes to taste
seasoning salt and black pepper to taste

Ingredients for the sloppy sauce
8oz can of plain tomato sauce
1Tbs of paprika
1 Tbs of sriracha (if you like it spicy)
1Tbs of Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs of ketchup
1/2 Tbs of vinegar
2-3 Tbs of brown sugar (sloppy joe's are sweet and tangy so it depends on how sweet you want it)


Brown ground meat with salt and pepper.  Then add diced hot dogs, onions, peppers and garlic. Finally add the sauce and cook for 10-12 minutes until sauce thickens.  Taste for seasoning and then serve on hamburger style buns.   Enjoy.
