I will be the first to agree that the last few months have been touch. Not just for me, it seems to be a tough time of year for just about everyone. Sometimes tough times call for comfort food so let me share one of my favorite twists on the standard sloppy joe. It involves Chicken Gumbo soup and a whole lot deliciousness.
First, let’s not fight over whether it’s called a Sloppy Joe or a Spanish Hamburger or whatever else. Let’s just agree it’s good and move right along with the recipe. Here is what you will need:
One pound ground beef
One small onion, chopped
One stalk of celery, chopped (optional)
One can of Chicken Gumbo Soup
Ketchup (to taste)
Mustard (to taste)
Brown the beef with the onion and celery. Drain. Add the soup and simmer for five minutes. Add ketchup and mustard to taste.
Yes, is is that easy. Plus it’s souper good! Pun intended. Enjoy!
