  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onion and bell pepper in the hot oil until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ground turkey to the skillet; cook and stir until the turkey is completely crumbled and browned, another 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Stir the pureed tomatoes, barbeque sauce, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and chile-garlic sauce into the turkey mixture. Simmer until completely heated, 7 to 10 minutes more.

  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I made a few changes like diced zuchinni instead of green pepper and yellow mustard instead of brown. I will add more salt next time because it definetly needs some.

My family is not a hot spice eating family and we loved this recipe. It is the very first sloppy joe sauce that we have tried that did not taste as if something was missing. We put neither the g...

Mmmm, spicy. Sloppy Joes with a kick, so this may not be suitable for those who can't tolerate a little heat. This wasn't spicy hot by any means, but it was medium spicy. I used ground beef and...

great sauce, I have been looking for this one for some time; only change: I use ground venison; thanks....

I really love this recipe & esp. as yet another "oldie but goodie" that can be easily made vs. buying a can. Per another reviewer, I added about 2 Tbsp tomato paste to thicken it before putting ...

I made this exactly as indicated and, for a sloppy joe recipe, this is a great one. The consistency was perfect and the spice was a nice change from the usual recipe.
